More proof that half casts are hotter. This sexy piece of instrument is part french horn, part clarinet and fully amazing. Invented by Adolphe Sax in 1841, the Saxophone was brought into the world to have the projection of a brass instrument with the agility of woodwind, and the ability to overblow at the octave. Oooooohh baby!
Inspired by youtube sensation, Sergio Flores the Sexy Sexophonist Saxogram, we are paying tribute to the Saxophone. This horn has been used to add a bit of sex to military bands, early rock, and jazz, but it wasn’t till the 1980s that the music industry developed a serious sax addiction. Every pop song needed an inappropriate, blaring, over the top sax solo, if only as an after thought during the fade out.
Here is some hot, steamy sax. The hottest and steamiest… perhaps.

Update: It was brought to my attention by one Andrew Quinn, that we missed some of the most seductive sax playing of all time…

And when too much sax is barely enough. Here is John Coltrane on the Soprano Saxophone with the jazz equivalent of a tantric sax marathon (Enough with the forced puns already).
