Vocal Ease is a compilation culled from three of Eddie Jefferson's '70s titles: Things Are Getting Better, Still on the Planet, and The Live-Liest. It features the late vocalese master toward the end of his career, sounding fantastic and making bold repertoire choices. The biggest surprise by far is Miles Davis's "Bitches Brew. To hear Davis's heady abstractions put to words is quite remarkable, even if the track pales in comparison to the original.

Eddie Jefferson: Vocal Ease by Jim Santella, published on May 1, 1999. Writing lyrics to fit transcribed jazz solos note for note, Eddie Jefferson founded vocalese in the late 1940s. His lyrics contained a contextual message about the referenced artist, which he performed, to the accompaniment of a small ensemble. The singer’s "Parker’s Mood" salute to Bird and his "I Cover the Waterfront" salute to Pres were recorded in 1949. But it was King Pleasure who captured the public’s ear, singing Jefferson’s "Moody’s Mood for Love" and "Parker’s Mood" a few years later

Eddie Jefferson (August 3, 1918 – May 9, 1979) was a jazz vocalist and lyricist. Jefferson himself claims that his main influence was Leo Watson. Perhaps his best-known song is "Moody's Mood for Love", though it was first recorded by King Pleasure, who cited Jefferson as an influence. Jefferson's songs "Parker's Mood" and "Filthy McNasty" were also hits.
