I didn't think the samples were that good in 1982. Always thought it was Morrissey on alto. Huh. Do you remember where you read that?

It sounds very much like a sample to me (and not even that good a sample). Vangelis does a very good job of mimmickry but the intonation isn't that of a wind instrument. The E-Mu Emulator was an early but very good sampling keyboard, and Vangelis had one in his studio at that time.

Bird On A Wire (Zimmer), Rain Man (Zimmer)

It's the only two I could think of right now that has moments of sax in them, haha

Rain Man of course.

I can't remember much sax in BOAW though.

Ok, I see. Wonder if it is the same sax player as on Rain Man...

I don't know. But sounds like it.

Marc Russo is the BOAW sax player.

Is it a sax that carries the main Commando theme by James Horner, throughout the film?
