europa-saxophone-musicSantana’s Europa Saxophone Music

This beautiful instrumental was released by Carlos Santana in 1976. It was  in a very similar style to another one of his beautiful instrumentals called Samba Pa Ti which you can also check out by clicking the link.

Shortly after the Carlos Santana release of Europa Gato Barbieri recorded a very popular version with his growly tenor saxophone sound.

Song Key

The Europa saxophone music offered for download here is in the key of G minor concert. This was also the key that Gato Barbieri recorded the song in.

That means the tenor music chart is in the key of A minor and the alto saxophone chart is in E minor. The original key of Santana’s recording was a 5th higher in C minor. This key works well on guitar but not as well on the saxophone.
