Etta Jones
Easy Living

You can be sure of certain things on an Etta Jones record. You can be sure of the best songs, the best arrangements and the best, hand-picked musicians. This record is certainly no exception. In the past, Etta has given us albums devoted to the songs of Buddy Johnson (a Grammy finalist), and Sammy Cahn, but this time out she and sidekick Houston Person have selected tunes whose only common denominator is excellence. All the greats of Tin Pan Alley and Broadway are represented here: Frank Loesser, Irving Berlin, Dietz & Schwartz, Anthony Newley and others.

Etta Jones- vocals; Houston Person- tenor sax; Richard Wyands- piano; Ray Drummond- bass; Chip White- drums

Tracks: Did I Remember; Easy Living; After You've Gone; Something to Remember You By; They Say It's Wonderful; Time After Time; Who Can I Turn To; Our Very Own; I Thought You Ought To Know; Slow Boat to China; I'm Afraid the Masquerade Is Over.
