Coot Stew is an appealing, medium-paced chart with a relaxed swing feel that gives the sax section several great opportunities to shine – the statement of the melody, a section soli, and lots of winding unison lines interacting with powerful brass figures.  It was originally published by Kendor in 1990, and after being out of print for a while, we are finally able to re-release it here.  It 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 a little more difficult that the other old Kendor music we are re-releasing and would be better suited for high school or college-level bands.  In fact, my band used to play this every once in a while during our Monday night tenure at Visiones.
