Just something I've had under my fingers for years now that I decided to record while practicing today, just to see if I could still play it from memory.

As the title of the piece suggests, it's a caprice that's always in 3, in somewhat of a theme and variations format. It's a good crowd-pleaser antidote to much of the saxophone's either boring or downright-unpleasant atonal repertoire. It's written so that the soloist plays both melodies and their harmonies at the same time, a technique that's definitely taken from JS Bach's solo unaccompanied works.

There are a few imperfections but overall I'm pleased with how this turned out, especially since it was done in a single take without having really played it in months.
