“Serenity” is a tune written by the great tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson. It was first recorded on his 1964 album “In n’ Out”. This song has an unusual form of 14 bars and mixes functional harmony with unconventional harmony. When soloing over this tune, you may find the chord changes can be tricky to navigate. However this one can be a lot of fun to play! Be sure to study the original recording and learn the hits that are essential to playing the melody.
