I've been caning a lot of Grover Washington jnr over the past few months, mostly Winelight, Mr Magic and Feels So Good. Something about his playing that's so pure it hits the right spot. poably my #1 sax man. So, which soulful and funky sax players do it for you?

well,it has to be King Curtis, for his own work and his additions to a series of fine Atlantic tracks

Although not the most technical sax player out there by a long way, I always love hearing anything from Jr Walker & the Allstars. They just rocked and Jr. Walkers sax playing was always soulful and from the heart.
Maceo Parker is spot on too - always tight and always funky!!

For early Rnb/Soul how about David''Fathead'' Newman in the Ray Charles Orchestra(Atlantic years)

His intro to "Night Time is the Right Time" on Ray's "In Person" album is genuinely thrilling. Was there ever a better way to start an album?

He continues on great form throughout the session(s), along with Ray and everyone else involved in those Newport concerts.
