Music theory question?? Texture?

If there is a sax solo playing melody and a guitar doing rhythm in the background, is this monophonic or homophonic? And what terms can I use to describe a sax solo?

    That would be homophony (single primary melody with a less melodically active harmonic accompaniment).  It would be monophonic if it were just a sax playing unaccompanied.
