This collection of Shetland reels was originally arranged by Jan Steele, a founder member of the saxophone ensemble, Saxtet. He transcribed them from a guitar performance, although traditionally they would have been played on the fiddle.

The original saxophone quartet version was regularly used by Saxtet as a rousing concert-closer and encore, requiring massive amounts of stamina and plenty of self-control to avoid getting carried away too quickly!

The E-Edition PDF bundle comes with the following parts:

Standard parts
Soprano Saxophone (alternative to Alto Saxophone)
Tenor Saxophone
Baritone Saxophone

Alternative & optional parts
Alto Saxophone (optional and/or alternative to Soprano Saxophone)
