Saxophone Clarinet Grammy

This Saxophone Clarinet Grammy page lists winning and nominated saxophonists who also play clarinet. It is nearly impossible to keep track of every winning or nominated recording where saxophonists play a tune or a lick on clarinet. On these recordings, there is no guarantee these saxophonists played clarinet.

Probably the most notable is Paquito D’Rivera. Since this is a clarinet website, my Clarinet Grammy Award page holds a list of players who play clarinet only on their winning or nominated albums. Mr. D’Rivera plays clarinet on this list of albums but is primarily known as a saxophonist. His album The Clarinetist Volume One, nominated for the 2001 Grammy Awards, is listed on the Clarinet Grammy page as Mr. D’Rivera plays clarinet solely on that recording.
