Lush Life" is a jazz standard with lyrics and music written by Billy Strayhorn
The song's lyrics describe the author's weariness of the night life after a failed romance, wasting time with "jazz and cocktails" and in the company of girls with "sad and sullen gray faces". Strayhorn was only 16 when he wrote the majority of the song, which was to become his signature composition.
Johnny Scott's "Easy Living" has the leader doubling tenor sax with Geoff Lapp, Paul Johnston and Dave Laing.
Recorded in 2004.
