Where does this sample come from?

For a few years now I've noticed a sample that I believe is the same in two songs. Posse in Effect by the Beastie Boys, and Take it Slow by Technotronic (scroll down to Pump up the Jam)... Each page has a sample to listen to. It seems to be a slow sax sample. I'm not sure, but that's what I think it is. Is it the same sample? If so, does anyone know where it's sampled from?

James Brown, "The Payback?" Maybe the Ohio Players? I'll keep looking...

Hmm.. Not "The Payback" I do hear what you're thinking, I think. That little downward sound on the guitar. But I think it's a definite sax sound. Unless, however, there's a break in there that's not in the partial song samples online that I'm finding. (alas, I don't have any James Brown in my collection. That should be remedied...) Thanks for looking :) Do you happen to hear the bit I'm referring to?

Definitely a sax, definitely used on a LOT of hiphop records - I know it's also on DJ Q-Bert's Demolition Pumpkin Squeeze Musik, too... but I can't place the source.
