Saxophone sheet music for St. James Infirmary


I recently had a request to show the sheet music scans I have for the saxophone section of the orchestra, in the 1929 arrangement that Fred Van Eps made for the Gotham Music Service - aka Mills Music.

There are actually several saxophone parts, so I shall include them all here. At the top of this entry is the 1st saxophone part, written for alto sax.

The also sax also served as the third saxophone, and that music is immediately below:


And, finally, the music for the 2nd saxophone, written for tenor sax:


All these images should enlarge if you click on them.

These are the parts included in the 1929 orchestral arrangement I own. So these sax sheets are just part of the general orchestration, and not necessarily definitive solo pieces. I have no other saxophone parts.
