Hi everybody!
Is "Saxophone Joe" a character from some American folk story? I've already discovered one "Saxophone Joe" in a story by Charles de Lint, but I couldn't figure out if he had picked him up from somewhere else.

    I don't think he is. I think it's just one of those nicknames that every saxaphone player who is called Joe takes up. A bit like most boxers who are called Ray always call themselves "Sugar Ray".
