How To Play Cup Of Life On The Saxophone

Cup Of Life was a HUGE worldwide hit for Ricky Martin in the late 1990’s.  It featured some great brass lines, and so let’s learn how to play Cup Of Life on the saxophone !!

Irrespective of if you are soccer / football fan or not, you have to admit that Cup Of Life as performed by Ricky Martin is a fantastically inspiring song.  It makes you want to get up, shake your bon bon, grab your saxophone and join in 🙂
