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:
Richard Reiter of Crossing Point
I also like Saori Yano, a Japanese female alto player..

here we go...
Soprano: YSS-475 +Morgan Vintage 5
Tenor YTS62sii + Zagar special 8*
Since the OP didn't say which 3 favorites, here are #'s 8, 9, and 10. To keep things interesting.
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?)
1. Ben Webster
2. Stan Getz
3. Boots Randolph
Super 20 Silversonic Tenor 427272 - Purchased New 1968
1. Lester Young
2. Charlie Parker
3. Gene Ammons

Subject to change at any moment in time ;-)

Too many to narrow down to just three, but lately I've been listening to a lot of:
