    hmm. I don't know much about tenors, but I suppose it depends on what kind of piece you had in mind. Slow and lagato, fast and Staccato. If it were my pick, I would say The Theme From Mission Impossible by Schifirin. If you want a cool solo, I reccomend Maple Leaf Rag. I'd played it last year on my bari (in a trio mind you)
