"Coot Stew" is an appealing, straight-ahead piece, with a relaxed medium swing feel that gives the sax section several great
opportunities to shine. The statement of the melody, a soli section,
lots of winding unison lines interacting with powerful brass figures. It
was originally published by Kendor in 1990, and we've re-released it here. "Coot Stew" has solo space for
piano, baritone sax, and muted trumpet. To hear a sample of this track before purchasing, please click play on the flash player below. The full MP3 of the piece is available to you in your account after purchase.
This is suited for high school ensembles that are on the more experienced side or
college-level bands. My band used to play this every once in a
while during our Monday night tenure at Visiones in Greenwich Village. "Coot Stew" has no woodwind doubles.
