The name of the real life female sax player is Beverly Dahlke-Smith.  Either Google her name, or see the following URL for her website that she shares with Greg Smith.

She note only looks like the woman in the video, she also states that she is the woman in the video.  Hope this helps.

The Expert was wrong, hee hee,  The woman is a professional saxophone player named Bev Dahlke Smith.  She didn't record on the song but has been a studio musician and played with big band in LA for quite a while.  She is from my home town in Wisconsin

The 'Heat is On' may well be syncked by all performers, but the sax player is NOT like the fakers in the Robert palmer vid. See <>.

Beverly Dahlke Smith is her name. She is an actress not a musician. Glen Fry's label put her in the video.

The sax player was actually Bobizio Moore , The studio musician. I worked with him at Gelson's markets in 1986.

Yep that's right bobizio is the real sax player and his brother had married Demi Moore which where Demi got her last name from.  I worked with bobby at gelsons too.

DAVID WOODFORD played the solo on "The Heat Is On" and the producer of the studio confirmed it. I recall a young sax player who was, or is related to Demi Moore indicating on his web site that he played the solo. He even had the names of the studio owner but Dave sent emails from the producer confirming that Dave played the solo. The young sax player may well have played on another session or even on an alternate take but not the original hit recording.
