This is a bluesy arrangement of the tradition Christmas tune We Three Kings, created for the McNeil High School Saxophone Ensemble. This moderate paced arrangement features blues, swing, and R&B styles with a lead alto solo over “All Blues” changes and more.

We Three Kings is included in the Jazz Holiday Collection which contains original arrangements of “Hark! The Herald Angels Swing“, “We Three Kings“, and “Silent Night” and the original composition “Klezmer Holiday” written for the McNeil High School Saxophone Ensemble’s performance for the Austin Symphony’s 2011 Christmas Sing Along Pops Concert.

Below is a video recording of the MHS Saxophone Ensemble running the piece in a rehearsal.
