Four Ellington hits - Don't Get Around Much Anymore, Do Nothin' 'Till You Hear from Me, Sophisticated Lady, and It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) - are given special treatment in this monster medley. Full instrumentation is required, and the arrangement is moderately advanced, but the result is great music!

    This is a world class arrangement for full orchestra. One must have a good piano player and strong winds to pull this one off.
