    I had trouble coming up with 3. The first two are obvious
    Zoot Sims: The swingin'est tenor ever
    Stan Getz: The sound
    Lucky Thompson: Through my current teacher I've come to appreciate players like this and Junior Cook more. Understated and soulful.

    Only three is tough, but in the end it probably comes down to:

    Sonny Rollins
    Dexter Gordon
    John Coltrane

    Why is it always the best 3? Why can't it ever be the best 37?
    Well okay...I'll try...And this is just off the top of my head....

    1.Adolphe Sax ( Did he even play it?)
    2.Lucille Ball ( Her version of glow worm is still unparalleled)
    3.Zoot of the Muppets (How can ya not acknowledge Zoot?)
