The Ray Brown Trio performs a collection of twelve favorites on the Telarc Jazz album, Some of My Best Friends Are...The Sax Players, a unique second recording in the series. Brown's favorite soloists are among the top echelon of saxophonists working today and fueled by the tight-playing, enlightened Ray Brown Trio, they offer sensational solos that showcase each player's distinctive style.

An added highlight of Some of My Best Friends Are...The Sax Players is a series of brief recorded interviews Brown conducted with each saxist asking about his earliest and greatest influence.
