Though not a single jazz musician is pictured on the cover of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, in collusion with producer George Martin, made strong use of the saxophone and British jazz players in their later works. Used mostly for texture or novelty effect, saxes in Beatles' works were typically masked slightly by overdubbed effects or arranged to sound like plastic instruments.
Here are five of my favorite sax passages on Fab Four albums:
Savoy Truffle—Baritone saxophonist Harry Klein (he played with Stan Kenton in Europe in the mid-1950s) anchored a six-man section that featured Art Ellefson, Danny Moss and Derek Collins on tenor saxes with Ronnie Ross and Bernard George on baritone saxes.
Honey Pie—A jazz-age jape, this tune featured saxophonists Harry Klein, Dennis Walton, Ronald Chamberlain, Jim Chest and Rex Morris arranged to mimic a 1920s English sweet band.
