a Quartet of One
MUSIC = LIFE = POSITIVITY
SAXLIFE plays YES: TOTAL SAX RETAIN is the first release of my Quartet of One, SAXLIFE. This is the music of English Art-band YES, arranged by me for a saxophone quartet. I also play all four parts.
YES has long been my favorite band. Their music is timeless and transcendant. The sax quartet arrangements filter the music down to its essence, bringing a fresh approach to these familiar melodies. Thirteen songs represented in a total of 5 tracks, including two medleys of 5 songs each. Total running time is just over 36 minutes.
This is a piece called 'Canzonetta' by Gabriel Pierne. I took the sax solo and scored it for a quartet.
Debussy's 'Arabesque #1.'
My arrangement of the Overture to Jesus Christ Superstar.
Here is Bach's Brandenberg concerto, scored for 8 saxes.
