My quartet will be playing at Chris' Jazz Café tomorrow, Wednesday September 17th, from 8-12. It's a high energy group, and we'll be playing my originals and arrangements as well as standards. The group will feature:
Dan Rufolo, piano
Brian Howell, bass
Dave Hardy, drums
Here's a recording of a recent saxophone quartet piece of mine entitled Paquito de Habana. It's got a bit of a samba flavor to it, and is dedicated to one of my early musical heroes, Paquito D'Rivera. Be sure to check out the ending for a nod to a specific nod to Paquito.
I am looking for arrangements of the following pieces for my High School Saxophone Quartet. I will, of course, be willing to pay for them. If there are not already any arrangements, I would be willing to pay for them to be arranged, as well. Thank You!

Hi. So I've just been so eager to find a great saxophone quartet piece. I'm trying to find a piece pretty advanced piece, for we are top band players. We have 2 alto players, a bari, and a tenor. I'm thinking an alto might switch to soprano for us to play a better piece. Any recommendations?
Just a quick note to let you know that I recently completed four new arrangements of holiday music for saxophone quartet.
The titles are:
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
Chanukkah Glow (variations on Ma'oz Tzur / Rock of Ages)
Placid (and original Christmas-y sounding...
I was wondering if anyone knows if there are good pieces for a quartet consisting out of 4 alto saxophones, we are currently looking for some pieces, we know they exist but they are hard to find. Any comment is appreciated.
Kind regards, c4d3r
This is my latest. I haven't separated out the parts yet but I will since I had to score everything out in order to record it. The runtime worked out to 33 minutes and 33 seconds. I couldn't have planned that if I tried.
Sorry it's a bit blasted/fuzzy/weird on Bandcamp, whatever...
I currently play tenor in my high schools band and in a quartet. Recently I've been noticed my sound getting worse instead of better. I play on a size 4 blue box with a Vandoren TL3 optimum
The problem with my sound is it squeaks/cracks quite a bit. I've never really had this problem before...

Hi friends of SOTW!
I just wanted to show you 2 original songs from my cumbias band called "Ocho monos", or 8monos, or, in english, eight monkeys.
I post it in this forum because we have something never seen in a cumbias band: a saxophone quartet (SATB)
Hope you like them! and any feedback will...
I just posted my newest "1-man sax quartet" video, this time of my spicy new arrangement of the ***** Spiritual "Wade in the Water."
Happy African-American History Month (a few months early)... :-)
best wishes from Pennsylvania,
My sax quartet needs to find a few songs that are incredibly challenging for chamber music competitions. Keep in mind that we don't like playing weird music like Back Burner. We've already played the Bozza and need something as hard or harder. Does anyone have any ideas? Links from...
long time no see and such. I'm still roaming the podia in Belgium with Cafe con Leche (and some other bands), and I recently added a very interesting setting to that: A quartet with Bauke Meersman on alto (the guy's a rough diamond ready to take the world!), Sanne Werkers on guitar and...
