From the composer: “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.
The E-Edition PDF bundle comes with Bb and Eb saxophone parts and piano accompaniment.
