I teach sax in my small rural town in Australia. I send listening assignments to my students using email. The assignment is a Youtube link with the simple question, "What do you think of the sax playing/tune/video" and "Comment".

I'm having trouble finding female sax players on Youtube other than students posting their own playing. I can only think of Candy Dulfer, Louise Elliott, Cactus Channel (from Melbourne) and then the list stops. My female students really need someone to look up to who is female - either solo or in a horn section. Is it really a man's world?!?

Kathy Jensen is an absolute beast! She plays with the Hornheads, and used to be in Prince's horn section before he started using Candy Dulfer.

Melissa Aldana is fantastic.

Many clips on YouTube of her playing to choose from. Here is a nice unaccompanied version of Giant Steps:
