Question Saxophone inspiration wanted!

I'm composing one of my pieces for grade 8 jazz alto sax, but I haven't got any ideas!!
I was wondering if anyone knew some good alto sax albums which could give me some inspiration for my piece - I'd like to go for a slow, melancholy style
Thanks!

Kenny Garrett is a great modern alto player.

get some Coltrane, some Gerry Mulligan, some Lester Young - the old school cats know what's up.
