That's a soprano saxophone. Professionals usually use the straight version like Kenny G's because the curved one looks like a toy.
Straightened soprano gets to a similar length of larger saxophones. You have it out in front of you its a bit more familiar regarding where it lies near your body.

I'd have to take a look at some different models, but curved ones might have different ergonomics: Finger positions might actually be smaller as there is less room for the key work.

If what I said doesn't really make sense watch footage of Tommy holding the horn. He's a little smaller than average but you see the horn doesn't really cross his midline. When I sit with my alto it lands directly in front of me in-between my legs and about an inch or two off the chair if I'm in playing position. My arms are also in a comfortable spot where I'm not crunching to hold the horn. If I were to hold his soprano it would be way out in front of me in a very, VERY awkward way and as a result my arms would be wonky. With a straight soprano you have more space for the instrument, and how its held would be a bit more like Alto or tenor.

Of course a boring worthless news segment would feature Tom as the main attraction. If they only knew he was a kiddie rapist. I wonder how much rambling nonsense they had to sift through to find something suitable for TV.
My favorite part was when she announced Tooter as Tommi Jayne. I'm sure Tommy thought that that adding the Jayne at the end would make his female soul more apparent when it just sounds like a surename and Tom still looked like a man. I don't understand why they're always publicizing hobos on TV.
