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 ?
Lucky Thompson was also an early pioneer of smooth jazz. From the sounds of his soprano he must have had an influence on Grover Washington. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXxgUw2PsOs
