I agree it is good to know the original for any tune. However, if you change the arrangement or play it slightly differently, that's ok, as long as it still sounds good! It's not a matter or it being right or wrong; it's a matter of how well it's played and how good it sounds.asaxman said:It's nice to see the CORRECT chart on this tune! As easy as it is- I've heard it played wrong, hundreds of time in the last 30 years! Sax players, note that sometimes the tenor plays higher than the alto.

In fact, Michael and his brother Randy did all the horn work on that album by multi-tracking. They were known as the Brecker Brothers at that time. I remember when 'Pick Up The Pieces' first came out and the band I was in learned it - somebody said 'They're from Scotland' to which I replied 'That sax player is not from Scotland'. Turns out I was right.
