Hi,

I'm looking for examples of players playing bebop on the soprano saxophone. I heard a lot of smooth jazz and also some hardbop but no bebop. I know that this instrument was not popular when bebop appeared. Anyone to recommend ?

Here is Dexter Gordon playing "In A Sentimental Mood" on soprano saxophone.
