Saxophone quartets are great sectional workouts as well as being showpieces on their own.
SAX QUARTET INSTRUMENTATION
This beautiful slow composition gives you an excellent opportunity to show off a quartet's musicality, both as a group and as individuals. Each instrument is given plenty of time with the melody and there is an improvised solo for the tenor. The slow tempo is broken up with some double time feels as well as with many accelerandi and ritardandi. This chart can be played by most any quartet, while there is enough musical substance here to fully occupy even the most experienced group.
