The Bare Necessities is Baloo the Bear’s song from the Disney move, The Jungle Book. The song was written for an earlier draft of the movie script several years before, but was retained for the 1967 release we all know and love. This version is arranged as a duet for two Tenor Saxophones.

Musicians at an intermediate level will find this a fun addition to formal and informal concert performances, with both parts enjoying melodic interest. The overall performance time is around two minutes, depending on tempo. The short audio sample is from the Clarinet and Alto Saxophone duet while the full length youtube video is the Alto Saxophone Duet.

Teachers will enjoy using this arrangement as a fun way to help with ensemble skills and swing rhythms. Students will enjoy bringing the music to life with neat jazz-style articulation.
