About the arrangement: The two tenor saxes play some unison and some harmony; most of the harmony occurs at the ends of phrases. Many different intervals are used in the harmonies, and contrary motion appears in certain measures such as the third and seventh measures of the A section. Rhythm section players should get the Condensed Score.
