Many people know only saxophones that blare fortissimo all the time to be heard because so does the drummer behind them, so here's a classical saxophone quartet with a nice sound:

The easy range of a saxophone covers only two octaves and a sixth, written from Bb to F# around the treble clef staff, plus minus  a semitone. Beyond F# start the altissimo register, not demanded from amateurs and written with caution for professionals, with complicated fingerings, and which generally sounds a bit more... I mean, perhaps not so much... well, plain horrible. But here's a saxophonist with nice altissimo, both on the alto and soprano

He even plays glissando at 2:18. Don't expect that from every advanced professional.
