Serenade to a Cuckoo
by Roland Kirk
arr. Zack Smith
Want something new and different for your young jazz ensemble? Take a look at Zack Smith's
chart on Roland Kirk's Serenade to a Cuckoo! It's a quality swing chart with a little humor
and a catchy hook that includes written solos for tenor sax 1 and trumpet 2, nice section solis,
a sophisticated sound, and easy brass ranges. It's also playable with optional reduced or
expanded instrumentations. Clever chart!
Instrumentation is 5 saxes, 6 brass, 4 rhythm.
Playable by 3 saxes, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone and 3 rhythm.
