The melody is nice and full of chromatic approach notes haha!
I wrote this arrangement for 4 baritone saxes and I had lots of fun doing that!
So I played at Super Mario sax section...
Hi, in this period I am transcribing all the time, and I am fascinated in particular by other instruments than saxophone.
I find it useful to open our mind to different approaches. I have found that trumpet and piano players have a different swing feel than saxophonist and different harmonics...
Hodges and Mulligan are two of my favourite players.
They had a great taste, sound a relaxed classy approach.
As a baritone player Mulligan (and Chaloff) is a big influence soundwise.
I have always liked the baritone as a cavernous woody voice rather than a bright harsh sound we often hear in...

Just got myself a Conn baritone sax serial number SN N135xxx.
I tried to figure out were and when it was made, there is no Mexico or USA marking anywhere on the body, and it seems like you can't trust the serial number charts that say that prefix N=1970. Anyway, help is appreciated!
