What are some (in your opinion) some cool jazz pieces to play at a high school level? I played a version of Birdland, which was awesome and also Hot House.
Just curious....which ones have you played?

Haha, thats not really high school level music Thi. Unless you're Poway or El Dorado, stick to Basie tunes ;). But yeah, channel one suite is definetly my favorite piece we played, and that had nothing to do with the 4 minute solo ;)

I didnt say anything about sucking. If you're from Mt. Carmel theres no way you can suck.

Moorpark also played Count Bubba last year. It is indeed an awesome song. In fact all of Gordon Goodwin's songs are great.

Duke Ellington's 'Jazz Cocktail' is a nice upbeat song, but would be best if your school has a talented jazz clarinetist. Also his Night Train is fun if you like flashy music.

I would also reccommend Thelonius Monk's 'Straight, No Chaser.' It's a classic and rightfully so in my opinion.

Dizzy Gillespie's "Manteca" is also an option.

Those are just a few suggestions.

O, we played Straight No Chaser and Duke Ellington's Caravan too

Of course! Every good jazz band needs to play Birdland, Hot House, Margie and others. I think that a really good jazz band would play a song requiring a tumpet solo (BML).

AGREED! Man, that's such an awesome song to play. I also like "Rock This Town", "Take The 'A' Train", and "As Long As I'm Singing".
