Things Ain't What They Used to Be
Mercer Ellington/arr. Rich Sigler
- Alfred Publishing Belwin Division
This is a jazz classic that every band should have in their library. The chart is a swing shuffle played at around 116 bpm and has a very familiar and catchy melody that flows smoothly from section to section. Also featured are written out solos for alto sax 1 and trumpet 2 and a lead trumpet range to written F-sharp top line. Optional parts are included for expanded instrumentation. A superb arrangement that is clever and effective in every way!
