On October 28, 2023, Desert City Jazz presented “Prime Cuts: A Choice Selection of Sizzlin’ Tunes.” It was an eclectic, varied program of some of our favorite big band arrangements from the swing era to the present.

Here’s the beautiful ballad, “Easy Living.” It was written for a movie by the same name, and it’s been performed by many artists in both vocal and instrumental versions, including Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson, Paul Desmond, and Stan Getz. This arrangement was written by Bob Mintzer and features Nolan Morse on tenor sax. Enjoy!
