Maria Elena Saxophone Music

This popular song goes way back to 1932. It has been recorded by many names including Jimmy Dorsey in the 30’s through to the late 50’s when a very popular instrumental guitar version was done by Los Indios Tabajaras.

Ry Cooder, the Shadows and eve Michael Buble have recorded Maria Elena. Our saxophone version done here is more in line with the one recorded by Los Indios Tabajaras. Similar groove and feel except in a key that is better suited for saxophone rather than their guitar version.

Song Key

Our version here is in the key of Eb concert. The saxophone chart is in the key of F for all the saxophones because the audio backing tracks have been transposed to fit.
