List of Recommended Repertoire for Bb bass saxophone
(with piano unless specified)

Much tenor saxophone music works well on bass. I have only included one or two particularly effective tenor pieces here- for more, see my tenor repertoire list. There are also a few good concertos for bass saxophone, so have a look at my concerto list and unaccompanied list.
