I am trying to think of scores that have lots of sax in them. I need your help.

I mentioned it over in the recent GOLDFINGER appreciation thread.
John Scott's SHOOT TO KILL has a lot of saxophone.

Bruce Smeaton's ROXANNE also saxophone heavy.

Surprisingly, a couple of films that have saxophone-playing characters like HURRY SUNDOWN and THE CONVERSATION use very little to no sax in the score proper.

I've been on the lookout for scores with that smoky, city-at-night saxophone sound, of which that Cop track above is a fine example. Would not say no to a release.
I've been listening to a comp made up of tracks from Trevor Jones' Angel Heart and Richard III. The recent Sliver release features the sound in a more subtle way, I'd say it's a key element but it may not qualify as sax heavy. And there's a game soundtrack that does it pretty well - Halo 3 ODST.
I'm keen to hear of more.

Crimes of the Heart has plenty of solo sax.

One of the best saxophone score tracks that I know of is on Elliot Goldenthal’s Golden Gate. James Horner’s 48 hrs. and especially Another 48 hrs. are favourites.

Don't forget Bill Conti's BABY BOOM. Never had a CD release and I doubt there will ever be one.

You beat me to it. No CD release, but the Twilight Time release of the movie has a pretty good isolated score, if you can look past the annoying baby sounds on part of it.

An Unmarried Woman- Bill Conti

Funky underscore along with heavy leather-lunged saxophone solos that are perfect to accompany you the day you leave your philandering, Boomer weasel husband.

"Packing Up"

Don't remember the whole score being sax-heavy, but what came out of it did:
