Alfred Ellis/arr. Mike Story - Alfred Publishing Belwin Division
The original version of The Chicken was released in 2001 and has been a top seller every year. Now Mike Story has arranged it for younger jazz groups without losing the original style and infectious fun! Beginning with a gospel style chorale introduction, the band transitions into a funky rock groove with an easy-to-play and hip bass line. This outstanding chart for young jazz bands features a 16-bar suggested alto sax solo and easy trumpet 1 range to written E top space. Playable with optional reduced or expanded instrumentations. Don't miss it! Our highest recommendation!
