Does anyone know the version of Things Ain't What they Used to Be for this video? I've tried Shazam and SoundHound but both can't identify it. Someone in the YouTube comments mentioned Johnny Hodges with either Ellington or Buck Clayton but I can't find either.

Thanks!

I'd be surprised if Naomi Uyama couldn't help you (seems to be a huge Johnny Hodges fan), or Ryan Swift (seems to have lots of obscure recordings with that kind of driving groove). Please let us know here if you ever find out!

(Also, sounds recorded in the 1950's or so, possibly in a concert setting?)

I poked around in standard discographies, and I cannot find a session with Hodges leading and Buck Clayton playing, nor one with Clayton leading and Hodges playing.

Moreover, I don't think that sounds like Hodges. Not that I can offer much of an alternative. The drumming sounds a little modern, and the chart sounds like maybe it is played in a different key (higher) than Ellington used to play it. Not terribly useful information, I'm afraid.
