James Rivers (multi-instrumentalist)

James Rivers is probably Clint Eastwood's favorite Saxophone player. He certainly is Eastwood's favorite New Orleans musician and his multi-instrumental efforts have been featured in six Eastwood films beginning with "Tightrope," filmed in New Orleans, followed by Clint's vision of Charlie Parker in "Bird." He appears in "The Bridges of Madison County" Most notable was his performance at Carnegie Hall in the "Eastwood at Midnight" celebration where he literally stole the show. A performance by The James Rivers Movement will be long savored.

Who played saxophone on gerry rafferty's Baker Street?

Raphael Ravenscroft is a saxophone player whose performing credits include work with ABBA, America, Kim Carnes, Marvin Gaye, Mike Oldfield, Pink Floyd, Robert Plant, Bonnie Tyler and, most famously, Gerry Rafferty, performing the iconic saxophone solo on "Baker Street". The solo has been mistakenly attributed to broadcaster and TV presenter Bob Holness, the result of a joke by DJ Stuart Maconie. The sax piece played by Ravenscroft is the major hook of the song, however this hook is not without its share of controversy.In wide circles it is commonly believed that sax player Al Newman actually played the solo during a routine recording session but that Ravenscroft later took credit for the recording. Al Newman's sax was recently sold at auction in central London.A similar sax line was originally played in a Larry Coryell composition on Steve Marcus' Tomorrow Never Knows album, which was released 10 years before "Baker Street". The original song is called "Half A Heart" and Steve Marcus, who was a well known and respected saxophone player played a similar line in it. In 1976, the Larry Coryell Basics album was released and "Half A Heart" was recorded with the same hook, only this time using guitar.
