The tenor sax is a powerful instrument. This is especially apparent in music created by mighty jazz masters whose skills shaped sounds still reflected in present-day compositions.

This week's Take Five manages to squeeze 10 classic tenor titans into five selections, including several great pairings, "battles" and studio jam sessions.
