Johnny Hodges / Rex Stewart - Things Ain't What They Used To Be download album

Rex Stewart's cornet and the alto saxophone of Johnny Hodges were two essential ingredients in the rarefied chemistry of the Duke Ellington orchestra during the 1930s and early '40s. In 2001 the Koch label reissued 16 recordings made by groups under the direction of Hodges and Stewart between November 1940 and July 1941

Things Ain't What They Used to Be" is a 1942 jazz standard with music by Mercer Ellington and lyrics by Ted Persons. In 1941 there was a strike against the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, of which Duke Ellington was a member. Because of the strike he could not air his songs on the radio. Instead, he used songs written by his son Mercer and pianist Billy Strayhorn. Strayhorn's compositions of this time include "Take the 'A' Train", "Chelsea Bridge" and "Day Dream".

This album is comprised of some unusual stuff, and once again we're indebted to the RCA Victor Vintage Series for saving it from obscurity. When these recordings were made, "big band" music was starting to shift into the small-group jazz format we still see today. Side Two subtracts Hodges, Nance and Williams and adds Ben Webster and Rex Stewart, for sides released under the name of "Rex Stewart and Orchestra. But make no mistake, these are the great man and his wonderful sidemen of 1940-41.
