What affect does the uvula have on playing the sax? If it entirely removed will that affect playing?

I wouldn't have thought so, but some people may use it for effects like fluttertongue.

It may even be helpful to not have it as we often advise people to keep an open throat.

Having had mine removed, and therefore having played sax both with and without, I can say for me it has made no difference in the long run. I did have a few issues after it was removed but that was more to do with the actual surgery itself, such as scar tissue, and general soreness. It has caused other, non sax related, issues though.
