Just curious what everyone's favorite Sax riff, solo, or tune might be.

The "Who Can It Be Now" riff and solo was one the first rock/pop tunes I ever learned.

Has anyone ever heard Maceo Parker's "Shake Everything You Got?"

I could go on, but I'd love to hear your favorites.

Yakity Sax.

*chases scantily clad girls around yard*

(Maybe that's not serious enough, but it's true. I love that tune.)

"I Send A Message" by INXS. Really, just about any INXS tune with some Kirk Pengilly sax-playin'.

I hate Saxaphone music, and most music by brass instruments save the trumpet and the St. Louis Toodleoo.

I've always wanted to do a slammin' house version of that.

Come on the correct answer is 'Shotgun' from Jr Walker & the All Stars!




of course I'll also take Coltrane playing 'Afro-blue' pretty much anytime, anywhere.

I know the Foo Fighters covered it a while back, though it was neither house nor slammin'. :D

I think my favorite sax solo is on the original studio recording made by Maynard Ferguson's band of Mac Arthur Park.

First thing I thought up. Thumbs up, Boots Randolph. Thumbs up.

I'm glad someone besides me said it.

His solo on "Urgent" is awesome, too, even though it was comped.

Oh, and the solo on Pink Floyd's 'Money' is one of the greats not mentioned yet.

"On the Darkside" by Eddie and the Cruisers, but then Wendell had to go and die in a cheap motel... :sad:

St. Thomas by the great Sonny Rollins! If you are not smiling and tapping your foot by the end of this song you are dead to me!:cool:
