The Honeydripper Saxophone Music

King Curtis

Roosevelt Sykes was the original honeydripper. It was Joe Liggins that wrote the lyrics to this music though.

The Honeydripper has been recorded by many artists over the decades; Cab Calloway, Dr John, Buddy Guy, King Curtis, Jack McDuff and many others. Robert Plant named his band The Honeydrippers and there’s even a movie called Honeydripper.

This  music comes from a time when rock and roll was in it’s infancy.

Song Key

Our version here is in the same key as recorded by King Curtis and his band which is G. This means A for the tenor and soprano saxophones. For the alto and baritone saxes it’s in the key of E.
