“Samba Pa Ti”
Saxophone Music and Backing Track

(Written by Carlos Santana)

Watch and listen to Johnny’s version on video:

Samba Pa Ti Saxophone Music

From the Abraxas album, one of Carlos Santana’s most beautiful melodies that works for both guitar and saxophone. Samba Pa Ti, meaning Samba For You, is a beautiful simple melody played over a slow samba-like feel that goes off into a double-time feel for the solo section.

This music is in the same genre as one of Santana’s other instrumental hits Europa which we also have here available for download.

Song Key

This version of Samba Pa Ti is in the concert key of G major. This means A major for tenor saxophones and E major for alto.

The tagged solo at the end is played over a 4 bar pattern over 2 chords so you can use a simple blues scale to improvise with.
