Yeah, I know what you're thinking -- another cheap album of makeout music. God knows these albums are all over the internet and usually have a soloist backed up by the scream-inducing sound of somebody fiddling with a bunch of computer-generated backing instruments.
I Love Sax is a big step above the pack, with saxophonist David Roach fronting a group of real live musicians, including one of my favorite British session guitarists, Paul Keogh. This 1983 release was marketed on British TV. My copy is vinyl and there doesn't appear to have been a CD version.
Granted the selections are mostly the warhorses of this type of production -- Killing Me Softly, Just the Way You Are, My Way, etc. The only real surprise is a cover of Don Gibson's 1961 country hit Sea of Heartbreak.
Roach's background is mostly in classical music and he has been a member of the Michael Nyman Band since 1985. The saxophonist released a single, Emotional Jungle, in 1984, the same year I Love Sax graced the British albums chart. Below is a link to a sample track from the LP.
When I Need You
From YouTube, here's Roach's Emotional Jungle single, which sounds like it could have fit into both dance and smooth jazz formats when it was released.
