I will admit that I do not know enough Rory Gallagher. A pal of mine sent me a link of this video of Rory with Taste. Very jazzy!! Wow! Some of it also makes me think a bit of Ritchie Blackmore.


Of all things, he plays some sax in the middle of this tune! I did not know he did that. He starts at about 5:00 in this:

It was a fairly regular feature in Taste.

I don't think so much - or at all - in his solo work but others will know for sure.

I remember Rory saying in an interview once that although he enjoyed playing sax in Taste, it kind of fell by the way side for awhile, and he ended up losing his chops on it.

He actually said something to the effect that it he would like to start playing it again but that he would have to get his proficency back.

Guess he never got around to it, seeing that he was already too busy at that point being one of the greatest electric guitar players of all time ...

You're correct. I should have caught that one as the debut is one of my favorite RG solo albums.

According to a post on one of his forums, there is also sax on the studio version of A Million Miles Away (Tattoo) and Hands Off (Blueprint).

A good excuse to find out by pulling them out for a play...

"TP - What happened to your saxophone playing? There was a lot of it on the second Taste album, some on your first solo album., but then ...

RG - I still play bits and pieces. On Tattoo, it's on "A Million Miles Away.” There's a little hit on “Hands Off,” and “Seventh Son of The Seventh Son.” When I started playing it, I was going to play actively on stage; two guitar to one sax number, about that, but my interest in sax ebbed a bit. I was going through a jazz phase, very fanatical, back in '69-'70.. I'm going to resurrect it one of these days. Playing sax with just bass and drums; it's alright if you're Ornette Coleman, but when you've got to take your guitar off and pick up a sax ... I've so many plans: I want to learn classical guitar, and learn to read music, and learn the piano."

Rory's sax:

Make:
Selmer
Model:
Alto Saxaphone
Year:
1968
