Default Re: Name some jazz quartets...guitar, sax, bass and drums?

I think you'll be hard pressed to find more than a couple albums with that line-up. Just because that's the line-up you have doesn't mean you have to go listen to a bunch of it. You don't even have to be listening to sax records or quartet records. It's good to hear what other groups with similar line-ups have done, but I think the thing that most often results from that is copy-catting (tunes, styles, etc.).

I would focus more on the tunes you want to play and the vibe you want the group to have. Once you figure that out, the fun part is making it work with the instruments and people/personalities you're working with.
