But the painful ugliness of the sound he made on 4 different occasions was enough to detract from the beauties of “A Love Supreme,” the ingenious harmonic revisions of “Giant Steps,” and the multiphonics in the cadenza of his favorite tune, “I Want to Talk About You” (played on practically every Coltrane session I attended). A Memphis-born musician, Benny “Hank” Crawford, was one of the premier soul-jazz alto saxophonists of the 60s and 70s. Joshua Redman Good additions. There’s no doubt that, if he were alive today, 19th-century Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax would be extremely surprised – and pleased, too, no doubt – at how the saxophone, which he invented and then patented back in 1846, has become universally popular, and was crucial in defining the sound of a 20th-century-born musical style called jazz.
Texas-born Coleman caused ructions in the jazz world when he arrived in New York in 1959, armed with a plastic alto saxophone with which he unleashed the revolutionary concept of free jazz. Where’s Hans Dulfer? Does ProfessorB stand for music Professor Bob Witmer (York University, Toronto, Ontario).
As Eddie did say to me, people were playing with technical ferocity which left out TONE, which is essential to emotion, soul, mood. I like most of the players listed, and regret some omissions. Phil Woods, Bird, Cannonball, Hank (rock and roll r&b genres) above Cannonball Adderly????
It’s in that spirit I chimed in on the piano list earlier. Art Pepper would have Been far more worthy if his years weren’t stolen from him. A leading light of the post-war West Coast US jazz scene, Pepper’s rise to stardom began with stints in the bands of Stan Kenton.
Like so many jazz musicians that worked in the 50s – including many of the best jazz saxophonists of the era – Pepper’s career was blighted with drug addiction. He played in many big bands (including those of Artie Shaw, Stan Kenton and Buddy Rich) and was always conducive to working on collaborative projects with other saxophonists. The leader and one funky saxaphone player from THE SHUFFLE DEMONS!
He was a fearless improviser with an imposing but mobile sound. Paul Desmond should have easily made the top 10!! The shrieking and screaming was as piercing and insane as anything I had heard.
Marshall Allen? A master of the swinging saxophone. Now that I think of it, that instrument would fit in nicely with this song. He is survived by a daughter, Cathy, and a sister, Santa Danico.
He was particularly fond of Eastern music and, as well as playing tenor saxophone, which he played in a hard bop style, he was a fluent flautist and oboist.
No John Gilmore? Towards the end of his life, he made records with more a straight-ahead jazz feel. Donaldson also sat in as a sideman on notable sessions by Thelonious Monk, Clifford Brown, Art Blakey and Jimmy Smith. Piano; George Duvivier, Milt Hinton - Bass; Cliff Leeman - Drums; Bucky Tied for first should be LesterYoung & Charlie Parker, Albert Ayler third. I also played PICK UP THE PIECES (The Average White Band-right?) Your email address will not be published.
And I say this as an appreciator of art who has also been moved by Dave Koz. Putting Gato Barbieri at 50 is a crime EUROPA is the sexiest song ever played on a sax.
Didn’t see earlier, 15 to 20 of them don’t belong on the list. Turrentine played a mixture of hard bop and soul-jazz in the 60s at Blue Note; later, in the 70s, at CTI Records, he fused bop with Latin and pop music.
An acolyte of John Coltrane (with whom he played between 1965 and ’67), tenor/soprano saxophonist and flautist Sanders helped to bring both a cosmic and deep spiritual vibe to jazz in the late 60s and early 70s. Despite regretting that Rouse is not there (and glad to see I am not alone with this), I was very happy to see Griffin rate so well, and even more Hank Mobley. I think that he would say the same thing. Heath has played with all the jazz greats (from Miles Davis and Milt Jackson to Freddie Hubbard), and continues to perform to this day.
You have glossed over jazz’s foundations. Would also include Steve Lacy. No Sonny Stitt or Phil Woods??????? These lists are ridiculous. Born in Georgia and raised in New Jersey, Mobley came on the radar of jazz fans in the early 50s as a charter member of The Jazz Messengers, before embarking on a solo career that produced 25 albums for Blue Note. All of your suggestions are good choices. There’s a few on this list I would trade out for James Carter. And as for some of the choices – whoever compiled the list should be hanged, drawn and quartered, and have his pocket-money stopped, etc etc etc….
No David Murray? label between 1969 and 1974 (which yielded ten LPs) cemented his place in pantheon of best jazz saxophonists.
No John Gilmore or Marshall Allen?? In the late 60s and early 70s, Adderley’s music became more exploratory. I think that there may be a case for BOOTS RANDOLPH!! Glad to see Johnny Hodges and Benny Carter on the list, as they don’t get enough acclaim. His sound is both lyrical and haunting. I’d love to interview his family. decent list, but Coltrane should be number 1. and Hawkins higher then Getz. He and Monk had something special. I forgot the “?” after the first line in my last statement. Starting out as a bar-walking blues player, he emerged as the most significant jazz saxophonist after Charlie Parker.
Chu Berry? He’s the Sonny Rollins favorite. Learn more. Brought up on a strict diet of rhythm’n’blues, this Los Angeles altoist played in the bands of Gil Evans and Chico Hamilton before making his mark as a proponent of avant-garde jazz in the late 70s. Benny Golson?
Love; The Wild Cat; It's the Girl; Oh, Lady Be Good; Someday Sweetheart; Ummm…Where the hell is harry carney??????? 1) GO BOY-Roger Caron As well as having a distinctive and emotionally-intense reed sound, Blythe was also a fine composer. Everyone has there personal favorites of course, but if you truly know jazz, than this list is the Canon of Sax platers. He did things on the saxophone that nobody ever did. Lee Morgan rated well on the trumpet list too–on records they are on together I think of Mobley and Morgan as The Dream Team. Check out AUTUMN IN MUSKOKA by googling THE CHRIS NOWAK PROJECT Vol.1 on YOUTUBE (just saxophone and piano). Are you in uk? That’s where the curators step in to validate or invalidate the taste of what we consider art left in our mouths and minds. Fantasy Records: 1864442.
Joe Henderson was probably THE Hard bop/ Blue note Saxophonist of the 60s, no one really came close to him during that period not even Coltrane. You guess ehich ones are wrong. Your Choice From the MoonJune Records Catalog, Johann Sebastian Bach: Goldberg Variations Deluxe Edition. Discover releases, reviews, credits, songs, and more about Joe Venuti and Zoot Sims - Joe & Zoot at Discogs. U was glad the jug, Gene Ammons squeaked into the top 25. In Parker’s wake came a raft of virtuoso sax symbols during the 50s, including tenor heavyweights Stan Getz, Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane, all of whom took saxophone playing to new, higher, levels of artistry while pushing jazz ever forwards. This list is worthless. Making his recording debut with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in 1965, he was already recording as a leader for Milestone when Miles Davis recruited him in 1970. What happened to Phil Woods (should be in the top ten), Charlie Rouse, Booker Ervin, Tubby Hayes, Clifford Jordan. Jerry Mulligan and Benny Carter are way too low. How many of the one’s with an opinion play sax. No historical perspective from the young hipster/listers. The Legendary Riverside Albums. It should be PAT LABARBERA. Especially the likes of Henderson and McClean. Given his technical skill, the emotional depth of his playing, and his importance in the early development of jazz, Sidney Bechet should definitely be nearer to the top, perhaps in the top ten.
