Tenor Saxophone Solo Play-Alongs

Playing the saxophone is more fun when playing with a backing track. Here you will find lots of free music videos of play-alongs/backing tracks for solo Tenor Sax in Bb. The videos display the music for saxophone while playing the piano accompaniment so you can play along.

There are many benefits to practising with a backing track. Your tuning and ensemble skills will improve as you will have to play with a steady pulse.

These backing track videos have been well presented with professional quality notation and are completely free to use. I have carefully arranged these pieces so they fit into the best range for the tenor saxophone. These arrangements are inventive and have interplay between the solo and piano parts.

There are several different styles to choose from which includes jazz, blues, folk, and Christmas solos.
