Things Ain't What They Used To Be Composed by Mercer Ellington. Arranged by Rich Sigler. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Belwin Mills Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 40353, UPC: 038081458731)

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.
