“Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree”

Saxophone Music and Backing Track

Watch the video to hear Johnny’s instrumental sax version:

Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree

Brenda Lee recorded this song in 1958 and eventually became a huge hit for her topping the charts for several years during the holidays. The tenor saxophone solo really stands out because it was played by the awesome Boots Randolph. I tried to copy it as close as I could and have notated it note for note in the music download.

This solo is pure gold for anyone who wants to improve on their improvisation and serves as a great study over a simple two chord progression (1 and 4) for any pop, rock, jazz or blues based style of music:

Song Key

Our version here is in the concert key of Ab major. This means the Bb saxophones are in Bb major while the Eb saxes are in F major.
