Sax Trio Sheet Music

Can anyone recommend some good sax trio music? I'm looking for just about anything BUT standard classical transcriptions (those are easy enough to find and/or arrange). Difficulty doesn't matter, preferable voicing is ATB, but any combination of voices is fine. Thanks!

Doo-Dah by William Albright (three altos) and Divertimento by Pierre Philipe Bauzin (two altos and a tenor) are both great choices. Doo-Dah is on the Prism Quartet's CD of music by William Albright if you want to hear it, and I'm not sure if Divertimento has been recorded.

There are some wonderful trios that were written for the Rascher Saxophone Quartet that you may be interested in. Michael Denhoff's "pnoxoud", Hans Kox's "The Three Chairs", Eric Moe's "Rough Winds Do Shake the Darling Buds", and Steven Burke's "Frenzy" are all substantial works for saxophone trio. The instrumentation for all is ATB. The first three works mentioned have been recorded by them, and should not be difficult to find.

Since the Burke trio ([I]Frenzy[/I]) that bkauth mentioned is [I]not[/I] generally available (recording-wise), I would point out that it is a [U]highly[/U] virtuosic work, involving extreme altissimo (alto repeatedly goes up to the second altissimo A), complex rhythms (e.g. hocketing quintuplets), etc. (I can't seem to find my score, so this is all from memory, but you get the idea.) It's a fantastic piece, but fiercely difficult.
