Here's another fun little solo saxophone piece that was written to serve as the backbone of a larger work for saxophone quartet. Recorded here on alto, tenor, and baritone. Works on soprano, too.

Motherless Child for 4tet

A couple years ago I had an opportunity to arrange two Negro Spirituals for saxophone quartet. And to my surprise, they've become best-sellers. And to my further surprise, they seem to be as equally popular overseas as they are here in the U.S.

Anyhow, I've been wanting to arrange more of these for quite some time, and have finally now been able to do so. So, here's the first of what I hope will be several new arrangements for you.

"(Sometimes I Feel Like a) Motherless Child"

Quasi-Frenchie Solo Sax

Free Chart Friday, 16th installment

I wrote this SOLO SAXOPHONE piece to serve as the backbone for a piece I was writing for Saxophone Choir (SSAAATTTBB).  Recorded here on tenor, but works equally well on any of the saxophones.
