Artie''s music is the culmination of a lifetime of being in the record business, having played a pivotal musical role in the success of more than 150 Top Ten recordings over the past five decades.
His saxophone can be heard on #1 songs by artists including Connie France''s "My Heart Has A Mind Of It''s Own", Neil Sedaka''s "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen" and "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do", Little Eva''s "Locomotion", The Chiffons "One Fine Day", Jay & The Americans "Come A Little Bit Closer", Len Barry''s "1-2-3", Bobby Hebb''s "Sunny", Spanky & Our Gang''s "Sunday Will Never Be The Same", Van Morrison''s "Brown Eyed Girl", Neil Diamond''s "Solitary Man", Barry Manilow''s "Mandy", the Archies "Sugar Sugar" and countless others.

Meanwhile, the 70s saw Kaplan change directions and become a singer/songwriter. The "Confessions Of A Male Chauvinist Pig" CD, the result of those changes, became a best seller in Europe. This CD contained two hits, "Harmony" and "Bensonhurst Blues" and continues a success in many European countries to this day, more than two decades after it''s original release.
The 80s and 90s saw Artie Kaplan devoting his musical talents to developing, composing, and performing on many different and varied projects. These projects include the CDs "Fun Time For Kids" and "Barnyard Stories and Poems", as well as a story book aimed at the lucrative children''s market.
