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!
