What are the instruments in this song interpreted by Gary Moore?

I wondered because I cannot recognize what is the brass instrument. I looked but couldn't even find the credits of the song so I ask here.

Also when trying to find out by myself, I found that there are a multitude of different instruments not really reminiscent of blues. Can anyone find a list or make it by hearing?

Finally if you guessed the brass, what was it tat made you recognize it?

Thank you for your time, btw it's an awesome song if you don't know it.

Not sure what you are asking. In this version

in the intro its drums, bass, guitar and organ. The signature riff is played by a saxophone (alto I think) with a second instrument. Best guess it's a saxophone as well (tenor or baritone).

Thanks that was my guess as well, but how could you tell? Because it's so soft like the air comes out slowly? I have no idea, please tell me. –  sinekonata Dec 4 '12 at 15:36
By listening :). The sax sounds quite similar to Paul Desmond on Dave Brubeck's "Take 5" –  Hilmar Dec 4 '12 at 23:01
