Jon Foley

Phil Woods on Aretha Franklin's "Somewhere," with a great Quincy Jones chart.

C Fine

David Bowie on Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side"

John Herr

Phil Kenzie (whoever he is, some Brit session man probably) with the alto break(s) on Al Stewart's hauntingly atmospheric platinum '77 "Year of the Cat". One of those tunes you can't get out of yr head.

tom cheek

Jim Pepper on "Spooky" is one of my all time favorites. He made $50 bucks for that great solo.

Dave James

Sam "The Man" Taylor authored the sax solo on Buddy Holly's gorgeous '50's ballad, True Love Ways. That one gives me goose bumps every time I hear it.

Gerry

Dozens of tunes by The English Beat--e.g., "Save It For Later." (Sorry, I don't have the saxophonist's name at hand.)

Greg Lee

Gotta second the motion for Curtis Amy on the Doors' track....and I'll add Tom Scott who plays all over Joni Mitchell's COURT & SPARK.

J

War, "Low Rider": there is a fantastic alto saxophone solo near the end
