Tenor and Fallen Angels by Joe McPhee.
Ken Vandermark has written and spoken of this 1977 solo Tenor Saxophone album from Mr McPhee as crucial to his development as a player.
Endlessly inventive, yet not inaccessible, Mr McPhee uses noir-ish themes to launch his angelic flights into the open skies of free improvisation.

What If/They Both/Could Fly by Evan Parker and Joe McPhee.
Evan Parker on Tenor Sax in duet with Joe McPhee on Pocket Trumpet and Soprano Sax. A diverse and enjoyable set of free improvisation duos from two masters of the form.

Sopranoville: Works for Prepared and Non-Prepared Saxophone. Sam Newsome.
That title sounds so academic for such an enjoyable album! While these pieces are a sort of catalog of every sound it is possible to get from a Soprano Sax, it is Mr Newsome’s artistic creativity and vision that stand out.
