Does anyone have/ know where I can buy the band arrangement of Stevie Wonder's "Sir Duke" for Alto Sax?

Sorry, what do you mean by "band arrangement ... for Alto Sax?" You mean like a big band with alto solo or what?
Sorry, should have been more clear.

Its hard to describe...I mean like the alto sax part for Sir Duke. Not a solo, but for example, Alto Sax 1, Alto sax 2, type thing. The sax parts you'd get in a band for a song.

I can't help you find an arrangement, but if memory serves me correctly, the original( Stevie Wonder) was in concert B!!!

I arranged the tune for a band with rhythm section, two trumpets, bone, and tenor a couple of years ago. If I recall, most of the song is in unison (or octaves, where appropriate). The horn break that occurs after the chorus is like 98% pentatonic scale licks. You could easily figure it out yourself with ten minutes and a recording!

If you are interested in what I wrote out for the horns (as a Sibelius file) send me a PM, but I would try taking a stab at it.
