"Mr. Cool" is the perfect chart for directors to use when introducing jazz music to a beginning sax quartet. It is a modal straight riff tune that uses only one chord throughout. It is the perfect opportunity to focus on teaching the swing style, jazz articulations, and some opportunities to introduce improvisation to students who have little to no experience playing jazz.
