EASY LIVING
FLY BY NIGHT 386

Steve The Fly is on the cool and deadly side of classic jazz cuts from the dusty archives, mixed and selected on the fly for a rainy day. This is music to relax and think to—slices from giants John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Sonny Rollins, Eddie Jefferson, Sun Ra, The Meters, Kenny Burrell, Yusef Lateef, Salah Ragab, and The Modern Jazz Quartet. All cuts from vinyl.
