I was wondering if we could start a thread of the best youtube videos for saxophone. I want to put a bunch on my website so my students can check the great players out. If you have any recommendations let me know. I don't want a list of 100 but maybe what you consider exceptional or the best of the best. Must sees for any student of the sax. Thanks, Steve

and the other parts of the tribute concert
just outstanding, not great quality sound but you just gotta hear it,

the solos can also teach students a lot about rhythm in soloing, so they don't get distracted with just playing fast and hitting screaming harmonics all he way through, as many young students like to do ('crowd pleasing techniques')

Favorite Youtube performances

Nefertiti:

I like these by Johnny Hodges, I wish I could slur and bend notes like this.



He set the bar very high.

Here's another one, good improvization on this one.

Thanks Neff. I listened to Impressions, Something in the temple, and Breckers Round about Midnight. Its obvious that Brecker was studying and doing classical stuff throughout his career. Just amazing. No compitition for whos tops in his generation. I'd love to dump this feed into an Ipod if thats possible? Wow, so much of Michaels good stuff isn't on CDs. K

Did my posting of this one a few months ago start a SHE (SOTW hype effect)for Super 20 tenors? I don't know, but they seem to be white hot right now, on ebay and elsewhere (they were a little cooler last year--I track this stuff way too closely). And oh my--over 11,000 views!

But regardless of the horn, what a great uplifting one by the Little Giant--

Not the greatest sound/video quality: regardless, I think this Joshua Redman solo is worth checking out:

Thanks for these links. The Johnny Hodges solo is one of the best things I've heard lately and the ones with Coleman Hawkins are great since he is always awsome!

Here are couple more that I like.

Sonny Rollins

Evan Parker
