Play That Sax

So, obviously there are many, many songs that make you want to yell ” play that sax !”.

Here are a few:

Fleur East – Sax.

This song has a distinct lack of actual saxophone, but it’s a catchy tune, with saxophonic lyrics .

=============

An old classic from Zoot and the Muppets – Zoot can certainly play that sax !

===================

Continuing on with the Muppets – Dr Teeth and the Electric Mayhem with “Sweet Tooth Jam” .

Zoot from the Muppets is certainly a major influence here at HowToPlayTheSax.com !

Maceo Parker – Pass The Peas

====================

Candy Dulfer – Pick Up The Pieces

Check out Candy’s sax solo at about the 8 minute 45 second mark in this video !!

Crazy Sax Guy – he can play that sax.

=========================

No sax solo round up would be complete without Cannonball Adderley (Alto Sax) and John Coultrane (Tenor Sax) from the 1959 Miles Davis album “Kind of Blue”.

Miles Davis – So What.

John Coutrane starts his solo at 3 mins 25sec.  Cannonball Adderley starts his sax solo at 5 mins 15 seconds.  Magic from both of them.  and Miles Davis on trumpet plus the band are awesome too !

Baby baby I’ve been waitin’ for the one to blow my mind
Baby maybe you can get it if you got that thang I like

I need a stay up brother with a James Brown soul
The type of red hot love that got me freezin’ cold

But you ain’t gon’ steal the show
No fancy cars or bass guitars

Get a grip and rock me all night
Hold tight, lean back
Play one on one with that sax

Get loose, get right
Get a grip and rock me all night
Hold tight, lean back
Play one on one with that sax
