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

Rex Stewart was always just that, a congenial and intelligent musician who was a political and social being. His cornet playing exhibited his fidelity to an instrument that his hero Louis Armstrong had abandoned after the Hot Five and Hot Seven sessions in the late 1920's. Stewart relished this instrument and diligently developed his unique sound on the cornet with his famous half-valving technique. No other musician ever replicated his "talking" cornet

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
