Here is a great solo by the tenor saxophone player Doug Webb. Doug is a fantastic tenor player from the west coast (Los Angeles area). I own a bunch of his albums including a Christmas CD entitled “Home for Christmas” which is my go to Christmas music when my family wants Christmas music but I want to secretly listen to a great tenor sax player!
Doug Webb is a totally swingin’ tenor player that has an incredible knowledge and sophistication to his playing that is incredible to listen to. I love players that can take a solo outside harmonically but they do it so well that you don’t even realize it. Doug is one of those players and besides all that, he has a gorgeous tenor and soprano sound!
Doug Webb-Tenor Saxophone
This is not a fancy video or recording but just what looks like an iPhone video of Doug Webb demonstrating a 10mFan Robusto Ultem 7** tenor sax mouthpiece while soloing on rhythm changes. I assume he is playing to a Jamey Aebersold or Hal Leonard play along track. The first time I heard this solo I knew I wanted to transcribe it! Doug plays some amazing lines with a good mix of jazz language as well as many modern approaches to his lines that I was intrigued by. I’m glad I took the time to transcribe it today!
Hope you enjoy the solo! Thanks to Doug Webb for his incredible tenor sax playing! Do yourself a favor and check out Doug Webb’s website and the many recording he has released as well!

If you love these type of solo lines, be sure to check out my PDF books Mastering the Dominant Bebop Scale and Mastering the Dominant Bebop Scale-Book 2, which both include a ton of jazz vocabulary that I have written out in all 12 keys. These lines are the foundation to building a great jazz vocabulary!!
