Coleman Hawkins - Picasso

Billy Pierce has at least one unaccompanied saxophone tune on his 
Sunnyside recordings. I can't give you a name right now because I don't 
have the CDs here with me.

Anthony Braxton recorded solo. I think he put out a 2 lp set of 
unaccompanied sax solos. The album I'm referring to is called For Alto

Isn't Naima played by Michael Brecker unaccompanied on the 
Hancock/Brecker/Hargrove CD called Directions in Music?
