Edition Notes

Composer's note:

'Sax In The City' started out as a piece called 'Salsa para Lauren'.
It was written to illustrate the salsa genre to an outstanding pupil who needed some help in understanding compositional technique.

It was later noticed that the Montuno section between letters A and B bore a passing resemblance to the signature tune from a certain TV series and so it was decided to change the name with a view to publishing
the piece as a saxophone quartet.

Following the success of the sax quartet version, I was asked to arrange 'Sax In The City' for sax & piano.
Eb and Bb parts are included, although only the Eb part is displayed on the piano score.


Eb/Bb sax pno


3 min, 15 sec

Performance Notes

1) Make sure that even quavers are used throughout (straight 8s) and all articulations are accurately played especially staccatos and tenutos (including the piano part): this is very important in this style of music. 2) The written solo at letter F is only an example realisation of the chord sequence, feel free to experiment. 3) Have fun!
