Yes, the fingerings for the naturals are the same, but since the sax has more than twice as many key holes as a recorder, you have many more fingering options. There are about 9 different possible (but not all practical) fingerings for Bb on a sax, 6 of which I have actually used while playing pieces. There are many other alternate fingerings for the sax, and ways to produce quarter-tones that I have been experimenting with.

On Descant & tenor recorder the fingerings are the same as the sax. But only for the natruals, the sharps\ flats are all different. If u switched from recorder to sax good luck with the new mouth thing
