Tenor Sax

Filled with thick hand drum textures, this quick and lively jazz waltz darts out of the starting gate and does not slow down until the track is over. The head is played at the beginning by the piano and finishes on a diminished dominant chord with the arpeggiated melody played in octaves. The middle section features a blazing piano solo that remains true to the original form of the head with its overall phrasing. After the solo is done, the head repeats and the piece ends.

This jazz composition encompasses the urgent nature of a hurried frenzy. Thus, the title is somewhat contradictory to the general feel of the piece since there seems to be little in the composition that could be labelled as "easy." The excited and urgent flavor of this piece might be something that the hypothetical "Oliver" in the title wants to have, or Oliver could be a hyperactive individual that wishes to have a more peaceful and relaxed existence.
