  1. Brand Name Players ...
    Here is the Phil Collins Big Band on Pick Up The Pieces with all these great saxophonists getting down and funky. Each solo is a master class in funk, blues and jazz saxophonics by itself but all together they're an entire school. Lots to learn here from each of these greats name players.

    Just found this on YouTube and thought it apt to post here. The creator of the video is longtime SOTW member SactoPete who has posted many interesting videos on YouTube, although I had never seen this one before. I like it because it gives a good number of well-regarded tenors to compare the...

    Just found a fantastic video of Flying Home, as played in 1979 in The Netherlands at the North Sea Jazz Festival during a tenor-battle with Budd Johnson, Dexter Gordon, Illinois Jacquet, Arnett Cobb and Buddy Tate. I was there as a 17 year old non playing jazz lover and it turned me to start...

    Hi there. Do you love Tenor battles as much as I do? I don't know why but there is just something about being in a Jazz club and having two Tenorman or woman go to battle. (Off course in a friendly fun competition type of spirit :D). So I thought maybe it would be a cool idea to collect all...

    Just found a fantastic video of Arnett Cobb recorded in 1979 in The Hague (Netherlands). I was there as a 17 year old non playing jazz lover and it turned me to start playing tenor a few years later. Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ka4qujkzcSA
