My favourite brand for saxophone is Selmer. They have a good sound and are suitable for playing classical music as well as jazz and pop.
I play a Selmer soprano saxophone serie III, an alto and a tenor Selmer reference.
I like to play classical with Selmer mouthpiece and Vandoren reeds.
The mouthpieces I use for jazz are Meijer for the alto, Francois Louis for the tenor, and Ottolink for the soprano saxophone.
The reeds a use for playing jazz are Rico jazz select.
Some of the saxophonist I admire are: Brandford Marsalis, Joshua Redman, Charles Mc Pherson, Arno Bornkamp, Mete Erker, Nick Bisesi
