Description:Mambo En Sax was one of four tunes recorded late in 1956 by the fledgling Fraternity Records label in what would prove to be Jimmy Dorsey's last recording session before his untimely death in 1957. The chart is an out-and-out solo Alto sax feature and was originally done with a full big band plus the Arthur Malvin Singers adding some bright and snappy (some might say a little too hip) backing vocals. We have removed these vocals from our chart and have re-worked their lines back into the band, making the chart playable with a standard 5444 line-up. Dorsey's solo is written out in full, as-played. We have also included some extra rhythm parts (Maracas & Cowbell) for good measure. If you are looking for a sax feature chart, this is it.
