I’ve been a huge fan of Billy Joel, he’s an artist that’s always given a lot of time for sax solos in his music. It took me a long time to realise it was the sax heavy songs I loved the most but now I’m here I’m never turning back.

So Richie Cannatta, Phil Woods and Mark Rivera have to be my initial inspiration. Since then, Michael Brecker has really got me loving the Tenor!

I've always loved this tenor solo by Mike Brecker on Michael Franks' "Sleeping Gypsy" album...listening to this album a couple of days ago reminded me what a great ballad player Mike was...
