Your All-Time favorite Sax Player?

Hello Guys(and Gals). I know we have some great sax players out there among us. Any thoughts as to who inspired you the most? Think of a single sax player that you heard play as a kid and thought "wow, I love that!" I'd like to read about the sax player that had a impact on your life and why.

      If anyone, John Coltrane topped them all. But Stan Getz (mentioned above) is a fantastic player. My favorite at the moment would have to be Chris Potter.

        Impossible for me to name just one! Here are a few that I really like. Charlie Parker. Bird has always been one of my favorites! Paul Desmond (silky smooth sound) Stan Getz John Coltrane Cannonball Adderly Johnny Hodges King Curtis Grover Washington Jr. (If only Kenny G. had this much soul!) Tom Scott (Check out his version of Shotgun!) Candy Dulfer (Sexy and soulful) Cliff Barnes (Average White Band's funky tenor player) Chris Potter (The best modern day jazz player, in my opinion)
