The ballad for this month is "As Time Goes By"
It was written by Herman Hupfeld in 1931 for the Broadway musical "Everybody's Welcome", but it became famous in the film "Casablanca", performed by Dooley Wilson as Sam.
(Film buffs among us will know that Ingrid Bergman didn't actually say "Play it again, Sam" in the film. She said "Play it once, Sam".)

Notes and a backing track (concert Eb, 65bpm) are here:

I have included high and low notes for alto.

It would be great to hear recordings from new members.

Looks like I'm going to have to start this off. Playing around with new DAW, Studio One ( thank you @Guenne ), which I quite like. Single take, I quite like the understated default reverb setting. My usual Tenor set up.

Excellent playing, as always.
I haven’t heard of a Saturn saxophone before - can you tell us about it?

Here's my try on Tenor.
Nice choice of song - I might have to give the alto a go too...

Good playing, I like your sound.
We await the alto (and soprano?) version with anticipation.
