I think it depends on where the cutoff line is for "known" I'll second Govani to start. I don't know that many people aware of him outside the Berklee crowd, which is unfortunate. Perhaps George Garzone is also on the list, although getting more well known? Few more:
.
Ernie Watts
Jaleel Shaw
Dick Oats
Ed Calle
Jerry Bergonzi as a player rather than educator.

You might consider one or more of them "known" but perhaps since almost all saxophonists are somewhat anonymous relative to others in media, perhaps I could say all those have notoriety less than what is warranted.

I'm going to add Doug Webb and Bill Pierce to that list, known as a studio guy and educator respectively but both monsters.

- Gabor Bolla and his (somewhat more well-known) compatriot, Tony Lakatos
- Max Ionata

All three are monster players that I stumbled onto accidentally, one way or another, on YouTube. They are virtually unknown in the US, and rarely discussed on SOTW.

I don't know if Rick is really a lesser known player but I wanted to list him as I love his tenor playing and sound. I've been on a Dave Weckl kick lately so I listed two players that did stints in his band.

Rick Margitza
Gary Meeks
Brandon Fields

You mentioned all these European guys I’ve never heard of but not this one, who’s a very interesting player. He plays on another video with a certain “reckless abandon” that I like.
