Baker Street Saxophone Music Sheets and Backing Track

What a great song Gerry Rafferty wrote with Baker Street, there’s no denying that but when they added the sax line it went to a whole new level. There has been some documentation saying that after this song became a hit, saxophone sales increased in many countries around the world.

Released by the Scottish singer-songwriter Rafferty in 1978. The song was named after the famous street in London England were he hung out with a buddy of his just after the break-up of his band Stealers Wheel who had the hit “Stuck in the Middle With You”.

You have 2 options for the key which to download; the original key of D and the more tenor-friendly key of C. You can choose one or both.

The key of C puts the tenor chart in D which means the range is high enough for the sax line to sound close to the way the alto sounds in the original recording. Otherwise, if played in the middle register it lacks power. It should be played in this higher range.
