Have you tried a YouTube search for Plas Johnson? Quite a wide variety of styles all on his own. Don't know why he's not more famous (I'd never heard of him til I took up the sax)I guess it was a different way of saying, recommend some music that will show me what a sax can do.. I've spent some money based on Nick's first answer earlier on. The rest I am previewing on itunes throughout the day. Thanks for all the answers. Most of the names I had never heard of.
Most certainly- one of my heroes!Dunno about the third - there are so many - but as a fan of old I like that Dick Heckstall-Smith, bless him, was as equally at home with the bombast of Colosseum in an auditorium as a purer trio in a tiny Stoke Newington jazz club. Like Roland Kirk he could also blow two horns at once. But how?
