    Default Was the Baker Street solo the one that kicked if off?

    Was the Baker Street solo the one that kicked off the 80's sax solo fad, or were there others?

    there certainly are others, but that one "baker street" is the most synonym,ous with the public i think,its a frequent comment can you play it.

    Was there an 80s sax solo fad? I wasn't aware there was ever a time when sax solos weren't used in pop.

    I think it took off in the 80's.

    Specifically songs where the only sax in the entire song is a sax solo.

    Hewey Lewis, Men at Work, and the Boss, were pretty big on sax in the 80's too....It was a good decade for sax solos - you don't hear as much sax in today's top 40 as back then.


    I really didn't like the 80's music much though.

    What? You didn't like gated snare on two and four, unvaried for three minutes at a time?

    Like it or not, the 80s were the last heyday for recordings and $$$.

    True - what little recording knowledge I got from others was in the 80's..... I still have problems getting my own recordings to sound "natural" as a result.

    Pete is correct but you do find an ebb and flow to it, you don;t get that much for a few years and then BAM. By the way, I love Phil Woods' Solo on Billy Joel's Just The Way You Are.

    There weren't many big sax solos from 1968-78 or so. I remember noticing all these David Sanborn type solos and backups after 1980. Didn't Kenny G put out Songbird in 1980? I'' check.

    edit: I messed up the quotes somehow. I've now corrected it, above.

    Here's my response:

    Exactly. If you want to hear how to play the sax, you need to go back further than the '80s. In fact, imo (it's an OPINION, folks), you'd do well to ignore the '80s altogether.

    luteman, there were TONS of sax solos in the late '60s, early '70s. Sonny Stitt, Dexter Gordon, Sonny Rollins, Jackie MaClean, Gene Ammons, Stanley Turrentine, Zoot Sims, and the list goes on, were soloing like crazy. I know, because I saw them doing it. Of course, those guys are all gone now, except for Sonny Rollins (long may he live).

    If you go back a ways further, you can find plenty of recordings of jump blues, blues, swing, and 'old school' R&B sax players.

    I think some people are lumping sax playing and sax solos together.

    Like the above post that mentioned all those greats as well as the person who through Kenny G in there.

    These are instrumental songs/ artists by nature and not really the same as where "the sax solo from baker street" fits.

    I'd agree that there were definitely "stand alone" sax solos before it. But Baker Street is the one the sticks out for sure.

    Which came first?
    Baker St or Harden My Heart. They had a similar line although Baker St is much better.

    I was refering to top 40 radio here. I know the sax has never gone out of style, but it dropped out of sight in the 60s and 70s as far as the general (white?) public was concerned. Everything was guitar, at least that's the way I remember it.

    luteman, and everyone, sorry I messed up on the quotes and now luteman has continued it. Pete Thomas didn't say what luteman quoted above (about it starting in the '80s). Luteman said that. I really apologize for that and don't mean to misquote anyone.

    Back on topic, ok, I didn't realize you were talking only about top 40. Guess I should have when you mentioned Baker St, of course. I don't know much about top 40 radio. I avoid it like the plague....I think there are much better sources for sax music, but that's just me.

    "Pop sax" did become quite prolific in the '80's" Baker St." and George Michael's "Careless Whisper" certainly started a few people off. Both very simple but very effective.
    Also high profile bands like Roxy Music and Spandau Ballet, Dexy's Midnight Runners had sax players,-- I'm talking UK of course.

    Gary, maybe this will help. This is both U.S. and U.K. hits. If admin wants to delete this due to the length I will certainly understand since I do not know how much memory it will take up. I just copied and pasted the listings so some items may be out of line on the page. And if anyone sees any errors please let me know. We want to give credit to the correct players.

    I did not play on the original recording of Daddy's Home by Cliff Richard, although I did play on a later live version in 1990. I think the original solo sax may have been Howie Casey or Mel Collins.
