Best solos ever. (No "rock band" instruments.)

I present to you a performance containing basically the best trombone solo I've ever heard.




Incidentally it's also got the best clarinet solo I've ever heard, but the trombone one tops it.

I'd like to hear what the rest of you consider to be your favourite solos, excluding your standard rock band setup - Guitar, bass, drum kit. Percussion is fine, I'm just not looking for any Mike Portnoy or Neil Peart solos.

Does Synth count as a rock band instrument?

This is my favourite song, so the sax solo is my favourite.

It does, but I don't really care. I mainly just wanted to exclude all the Metallica, Gun's and Roses and AC/DC solos that would have undoubtedly turned up.

I saw a great solo last night although I expect I'd get banned quicker than you could say 'female masturbation' if I posted it on here, thank you very much.

The synth solo at 2:50 -3:30 is killer, you said no rock band instruments, but I love it.

Also:

The sax solo is just awesome.
