Description

This Japanese children’s song is about the “sad chirping of a tiny bird on the shore looking around for its mother.” This is transformed into a swinging party, as the bird finds its mother, the whole family gets together, and they all swing happily ever after. Solos for piano, 2nd trombone and 2nd trumpet. Highlights include a rubato piano intro and a sax soli.

Instrumentation

Standard Big Band (5/4/4/4)
