Easy Living by Paul Desmond
Released: Jan 1966
Label: RVG Bluebird/Heritage
The last in a string of Paul Desmond solo albums with guitarist Jim Hall and drummer Connie Kay, Easy Living collects numbers from various sessions featuring three different bassists, including Percy Heath. Thankfully, everything sounds of a piece, with Jim Hall laying down delicate webs of chords for Desmond to float over. This CD includes three bonus cuts (two of which add a joyous, upbeat dimension to the set), but not the original album art, which featured a Catwoman type lounging in her penthouse boudoir.
