Things Ain't What They Used to Be
Music by Mercer Ellington / arr. Rich Sigler
Young Jazz Ensemble
2 (Medium Easy)
This is a jazz classic that every band should have in their library. This is a swing-shuffle played at around 116 BPM and has a very familiar and catchy melody that flows smoothly from section to section. It has written-out solos for alto 1 and trumpet 2 and the lead trumpet range is to written F-sharp top line. A superb arrangement that is clever and effective in every way.
