... you lot can introduce me to? I mean, I like 80s sax-pop, a little bit of jazz-y lounge stuff and others but I don't know where to go from there. I don't really know any one name.

-- On a slightly different topic:- My mum had a CD. It was called Midnight Sax (blue cover) - but I can't find that specific one anywhere... I think it was from the 90s. I've found similar ones, but not the right track-listing - I grew up listening to that and I wish I had it now to listen to. Grrr.
