It doesn’t get any easier than this! Every note is within an octave (low C to third space C). Everyone has a short solo and ample rests. The key is in F, one flat. There is nothing faster than a slow eighth note. The piano is laying down steady pulses on every beat. The phrases are short so there is no problem with running out of air. And with all the simplification, it still sounds good. Even the piano part is easy.
