Hi, I listened to this song while my daughter was playing at Super mario videogame.
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...

That's excellent playing and a great video to accompany it. Very clever work.

Thanks to all of you.
It was very funny and also a different thing to do to me!
I have found a good setup with this Conn 12m and an old Otto Link tone edge.
I hate harsh "lawnmover" kind of tone, I like a woody dark and cavernous tone.
soundwise my biggest references Mulligan and Chaloff.
But my major influences in improvisation are tenor players.
Super Mario bros has some nice tunes.
I realized that while I was sending some emails at my computer and my daughter was playing at Super Mario Odyssey in the sitting room.
Maybe I could arrange other tunes from that videogame in the future...

Thank you Instrument Attic!
For me the funniest part is the 3 options bonus challenge: play a solo
1oh yes
2no I have a bad reed
3no, my G# key is sticky
But nobody mentioned that, so maybe it's just a silly thing in my head...haha
Did you enjoyed that or did yo prefer another parts?, just curious

Wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Was you daughter impressed or are you still just ‘dad’ messing around with a silly saxophone?

Thank you A Greenie She was impressed, because she listened to the saxophone playing a well known tune for her and she had fun playing an actress role! I am trying to teach saxophone to her, but at the moment she prefers singing. For me it's great, the better you sing the better you play. The instrument should become a projection of the voice and the ideas you are singing in your head while playing. It's hard to get there though...
