"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, and 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. 

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.
