The Hawaii Five-O Theme

I was asked to record this as a favor for my local community theatre. They wanted to use the original recording, but can’t since it costs money to do that. The composition is ok to use, but the recording is owned by someone else who wants paid each time it’s used. Their solution? Have me record it! 

So yeah, it was great fun dusting off the old bari and alto saxophones and tracking 20 or so takes. The surfer drums were especially fun and for me make the whole thing work. I’ve heard the song all over the place. I think I first played it in pep band in highschool. Anybody ever watch the actual show?
