Craig Christman's Facebook profile


Gerald Albright A great contemporary sax player.  Definite jazz influence but also plays smooth jazz and R&B.

Bob Berg

Saddened by his untimely passing, I will always remember his great playing and influence.  4/7/1951 - 12/5/02

Michael Brecker

Incredible!  The master of the tenor sax, and my greatest inspiration!   3/29/49 - 1/13/2007, I can't believe he's gone.  His music carried me through an extremely tough time after my dad's death in 1988.  I listened to his first album "Michael Brecker" pretty much non-stop for almost a year after my dad died of a heart attack when I was 17 years old. A great website with a wealth of information about Mr. Brecker including some outstaning audio clips.  Kudos to Paul Croteau for this site!
Michael Brecker Live Recordings This guy has collected pretty much every bootleg audio & video recording, plus solo transcriptions and will trade with others.
Nick Brignola One of the finest baritone sax players and woodwind doublers, he died much too young just like many of his peers.  7/17/36 - 2/8/02   His passing was on the 25th anniversary of the date I started playing the sax.
