Russell Peck "The Upward Stream" is my hands-down favorite, and one of the best saxophone concerti overall. Written for James Houlik, and he recorded it with the London Symphony on his (sadly out-of-print) tenor saxo concerti CD "American Saxophone" on the Koch-Schwann label. Same recording is on a CD of music by Russell Peck on the Albany label, which is still in print.

Email James Houlik (http://www.jameshoulik.com) for his favorites. I'm sure he knows many that I don't.

Eric Ewazen's "Classical Concerto for Tenor Saxophone". It's a refreshing new modern work, also recorded by Houlik.

Two of my favorites are:

Arthur Frachenphol Sonata
James Di Pasquale Sonata

The Frackenphol is very accessible to players and audiences alike.

The DiPasquale is shorter and a bit harder. The first movement requires extended range up to 4th ledger line A.
