Been there, done that :)  Sorry, the following isn't a linux solution, 
but it works for me.

I've used a shure and a C-1 Behringer and some cheap mics. None did a 
good job for me. Also tried a clip-on (audio-technica) which is great 
for live but picks up too many clicks for studio.

I finally ended up using my Zoom H4 recorder. Get it away from the horn 
....  I'm about 4 or 5 ft away with the zoom on a small table stand. If 
you want to hear some of these recordings got to my web site 

I remember reading somewhere that Stan Getz or someone saying that the 
best sax recordings were done with a "big mic" at the far corner of the 
room ... I don't have a big room or a big mic so I'm happy with the H4.
