Mark Maxwell, aka Dr. SaxLove
Hi, I'm Mark Maxwell, aka Dr. SaxLove, and I know a thing or two about playing the saxophone.
I've been playing the sax for more than 50 years and here's one thing I've learned for sure: Saxophone is the best instrument to express love and sensuality.
And that is exactly what I'm trying to do here with this music - spread loving, healing, sensual, and compassionate feelings that lift your spirits and make you feel good!
What is it about the saxophone that's so wonderfully cool and awesome? Well, here's another thing I think I know for sure: The saxophone loves you. It embraces you. It encourages you to feel warm and luscious and friendly and hip. It wraps you in its arms and kisses you on the lips.
Yes, the sax loves you, and so do I! I send you love, and I hope this music finds you happy, healthy, and filled with peace. Enjoy!
Stunning concoction of sundry themes worthy of accomplishing dreams by obliterating any worry, guilt and hostility outta its listeners by supplanting them with TRANQUILTY, HAPPINESS, CALMNESS, AND PROSPERITY INSTEAD!!! STARTLING JOB, UNDOUBTEDLY CAPABLE OF TEMPTING MUSICALLY ENTHUSIASTIC MOB ACROSS THE GLOBE!!! HATS OFF TO THE CADRE WHO COMPOSED THIS ALBUM TO ENJOY IT WITH CHUM(S). 🤞🏆🥇💎💃👏✌~Jaimin Shah
I started working third shift a few months ago and have been listening to your calming live streams while trying to adjust to sleeping during the day. I recognize many of the songs in this collection, and am so glad to know you wrote the ones I remember and have enjoyed so much! I was privileged to hear you play live a few times (Club Soda), and hope to be able to do so again someday. You are a marvelous entertainer! Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents with the world! ~Chuck Cooper
I've been too sad lately, but I just feel like finally breathing when I hear this. So calming and powerful. Thank u ❤️~Camila

Dear Mark, I started playing sax few months ago and I love it, but as soon as I heard about you I really discovered how I'd like to play ... maybe in another life but surely I' ll do my best ! Happy to have met you! Kind Regards, ~Teresa
Hi Mark well as usual really lovely I must say though that I like Blue Moon the best I have just transferred them to my I Pod so that I can listen wherever I am. With regard to the Christmas CD's can't for an excuse to play them. many thanks again for your very prompt help in getting them. ~Val Parsons, United Kingdom
Aww WOW Mark! I have just had my first play through of Saxomonica Blues from the CD, through proper speakers! What depth, weight and dynamics! It gave me goosebumps over and over, so much feel and emotion. I can't believe it was recorded in 2004 and I've just found it. I'm sure I'll make up for the missed years with repeated playthroughs. I'm going to struggle to get the next CD in for a while! It's great with a little power behind it, yet turn it down and it's beautiful ambience for guests. I'm going to be "attempting" to breathe along with it as my harp skills increase over the years. The £18 Import tax was worth it for this CD alone! I have a shelf of CDs next to my player, that are never put away, as they are my life's constants (mostly Toto, Steely Dan and Donald Fagan) that shelf contents have just been increased. I hope there are new projects on the horizon. I am spreading the word to anyone I know, with the wish that this inspires more followers, sales and Saxomonica Two. Thank you Mark, it is a TRUE PRIVILEGE. ~James Walker, London, UK

Mr. Maxwell: I have no idea how old you are, where you studied music, or what your other background is --- Yet, I must tell you that had you been alive and playing music 60 years ago, Thelonious Monk would have bowed to your rendition of "Round Midnight". You, sir, are absolutely one the Jazz Greats of our time. Thank you for the ear candy! ~Bill F.
Hi Mark. You're not only a gifted musician but also a Gentleman. I wish I could play the sax like you do and have your "arranger" skills: I appreciated your "making of" Games of Thrones video very much. I 'm also a smooth jazz fan and regret that this genre is not played a lot in France. That's only a few days ago that I discovered that you are THE saxophonist who is playing the subtle version of "Sexual Healing" that I've been listening to for a year... So I just came to know last week-end who you are and the different and brilliant aspects of your work. Keep on giving pleasure listening to your tracks. Thanks. ~Pierre
I am very grateful to have found your page, the content, didactic material and backing tracks, I would like to thank you and hope you continue doing such work. Obviously I'll show it to my friends. PS: When I have money I will buy the album Saxomonica Blues to enjoy at home. Greetings from another musician in Chile! ~Benjamin
Hi, Mark. I just happened upon your music while searching for Motown jazz on YouTube. Once I found you I couldn't let you go! :) You are amazing!!!! ~Tabetha F., North Carolina
Hi Mark. We recently moved a few hours north of the Bay Area. We were ecstatic to find the box with your CD's. It was like finding treasure for us. Cannot express how much my hubby and I love listening to your music. There is an undeniable quality and passionate expression that just radiates. Thank you for making your fans happy and blessed listeners. ~Andrea Saltray, California
This music calms my stress and eases anxiety. It fixed my soul the moment I found it. Just beautiful. The level of gratefulness is unimaginable. All my gratitude, healer.<3 ~Ashli
Hi Mark. Thank you for your music. I'm a big fan of Grover, Kenny and Boney, and I needed a new Saxophone player to listen to. I'm a sax player as well and I found your music to be both great and calming at the same time. Since Grover has passed I needed something to fulfill my needs. I saw you at a booth during a fair a few years ago and loved the way you played. I bought all of your albums and then you said something to the fact that you were moving and that you were getting a real job. I was very sad that you were not playing any more. Anyway I was hoping that you were going to continue playing. So glad that you contacted with with the new record. You have a very unique style that touches my soul. I have and will continue to refer your music to everyone I know. Please let me know if you will be playing live anywhere. Can't wait to see you live. Thanks again hope to hear much more of you in the future. ~Tom Jack
