Anthony Braxton

Anthony Braxton (born June 4, 1945) is an American experimental composer, educator, music theorist, improviser and multi-instrumentalist who is best known for playing saxophones, particularly the alto.  Braxton grew up on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, and was a key early member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians.  He received great acclaim for his 1969 double-LP record For Alto, the first full-length album of solo saxophone music. Braxton has released well over 100 albums since the 1960s.

Paquito D'Rivera  

Francisco de Jesús Rivera Figueras (born 4 June 1948), known as Paquito D'Rivera, is a Cuban-American alto saxophonist, clarinetist and composer.  He was a member of the Cuban songo band Irakere and, since the 1980s, he has established himself as a bandleader in the United States.  His smooth saxophone tone and his frequent combination of Latin jazz and classical music have become his trademarks.

Oliver Nelson  

Oliver Edward Nelson (June 4, 1932 – October 28, 1975) was an American jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, arranger, composer, and bandleader.   His 1961 Impulse! album The Blues and the Abstract Truth (1961) is regarded as one of the most significant recordings of its era.  The centerpiece of the album is the definitive version of Nelson's composition, "Stolen Moments". Other important recordings from the 1960s are the albums More Blues and the Abstract Truth (1964) and Sound Pieces (1966), both also on Impulse!
