"Things Ain't What They Used to Be" is a terrific shuffle swing at 120 BPM. It features a classic melody with written solos available for alto, trumpet, trombone, and tenor sax. A powerful Baylock-style shout chorus is a hit, and the lead trumpet range is to written G on top of the staff. A winner for sure! (6:14)
