  1. Solo Performer
    So I'm playing a tenor solo in church for Christmas, but all the sheet music I have found is extremely simple and quarter notes. I'm a sophomore in high school but am fairly advanced. Does anyone know where to get more advanced sheet music for a Christmas performance? Thank you!
  2. Saxophone Solo and Ensembles
    Hi, folks Just a quick note to let you know that I recently completed four new arrangements of holiday music for saxophone quartet. The titles are: Greensleeves Fantasy O Come, O Come, Emmanuel Chanukkah Glow (variations on Ma'oz Tzur / Rock of Ages) Placid (and original Christmas-y sounding...

  4. New Product & Dealer Announcements
    Hi, sax-friends! Some (many?) of you are familiar with HirschMusic Publications' saxophone quartet music. For those who aren't, here's a link to our "Silent Night" arrangement for saxophone quartet. It's scored for both SATB & AATB. Grade 3 playability, but sounds great with pro groups (it...

  7. Composer/Composition
    Hey I am performing for this charity organization at my highschool (at an old folks home) and I wanted to do the Christmas song (chestnuts roasting on an open fire) cause I saw a lot of really cool recordings of it on the internet. Although I cant find any sheet music and I dont really have the...
  8. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    Hi folks, it's been a while since I've visited the forums. It's good to be back! I did a quick search and didn't find what I was looking for so I thought I'd ask. What are you favorite arrangements of carols/holiday songs for sax quartet (AATB)? We have "Let it Snow" and, of course, a set of...
  9. Recordings, Movies
    I love Christmas time! I love the saxophone and Christmas music! I just finished a new video, posted on you tube for Christmas and every sax player with that kid's spirit still in your heart. I never had the new sax under the Christmas tree experience that a few friends had as little people. I...
  10. Misc. Instruments and Voice
    I have been playing around more and more with penny whistles and really having fun with them. I recorded a couple of tracks for Christmas that have been posted thru the whistle world but not to sax guys - so here you go! They are free downloads on my Smooth Jazz Christmas site -...
  11. Recordings, Movies
    I'm looking for recommendations of a good tenor Christmas CD or single preferrably with a blues or swing style. Doesn't matter the year, as long as it's an instrumental piece with the sax at the forefront.
  12. Who We Are & "Get Togethers"
    I did one of these a long time ago, around 1991 or so, and it was a lot of fun. There were at least 100 of us, though I don't remember the exact number. We had one rehearsal in a high school band room, then caravanned over to Knott's Berry Farm to play. We were welcome to stay and enjoy the park...
