I'm pretty certain it's the Hill Street Blues theme by Mike Post.

Yeah, Baker Street.

If you are familiar with the song, download the mp3 bugbread posted. I wasn't ready for it to sound like that!

To make up for my erroneous first answer here is an amusing link from the metafilter archives regarding 80s saxophone solos.

Heh. I read the URL in the link before clicking it, and thought "saxo.mp3, eh? Hmm, I bet that's Baker Street". Sure enough... :)

The solo was famously played by Bob Holness of Blockbusters fame (not).
