Ellington, Duke – Don't Get Around Much Anymore for Brass Quintet.
Duke Ellington is regarded as one of the most important figures in jazz history. He composed incessantly, led his own band for decades, and was an extraordinary pianist. He elevated jazz to be perceived as an art form on the level of other musical styles. In jazz he was a giant.
The song was written and first recorded in 1940, but under a different name. The new lyrics and title were added in 1942 making it fly to the top of the charts when both Ellington's band and the Ink Spots recordings hit the shelves.
Keith Terrett has written a delightful arrangement of about five minutes in length of one of Duke's most well known songs for brass quintet for moderately advanced performers.
