     Sorry about the delay, but there was that pandemic thingy... .  The time gave us the space to to explore our production and playing techniques.

     Easy Live, the title track tune, was the tune that mixed itself, It got done in only one take and we found ourselves impressed by it. It's a beautiful tune.

     Bernie's Tune is a lively attempt at an old chestnut. Melodic drum solo by Art.

     Call Me: Latin approach to a tune of the '60s. Mambo Time !!! 

     Soft Sounds is the 'blast from the past'; a cover of one of Henry Mancini's jazz background tunes from the 1960's TV show, Peter Gunn..

     Smooth Operator: A cover of Helen Sade's tune.

     Pancho Sancez's Morning, with a strong Latin vibe, is presented.

     Bonus track, O Tannenbaum is the Holiday tune of the session, It's a cover of the Vince Guaraldi theme of the old Peanuts TV special.

VGC rendition of Straight, No Chaser

     First video of a run-thru of Thelonius Monk's Straight, No Chaser





From The Archives...
....a tribute performance by our Uncle and Mentor, Nick Milea.

     Still another one of those "experiments, this one comes from VGCs' If You Could See Me Now  CD. It uses a sample from one of Nick Milea's recordings, Autumn In New York It's an ingenious  and inspired rendition accompanied by a loving and humble VGC attempt to play along. In your minds eye, try to pick out the sounds one would associate with the gusting Autumn wind.
