About the album

Harry Allen - tenor sax | John Allred - trombone | Rossano Sportiello - piano | Joel Forbes - bass | Chuck Riggs - drums.

This CD is Harry Allens ode to New York. Starting off with Autumn in New York, he leads us with Broadway Melodies to Chinatown, Down the Depth, Drop Me Off in Harlem, Harlem Nocturne, Manhattan Serenade, of course New York New York, New York State of Mind, Puttin on the Ritz, along the Sidewalks of New York to Washington Square he is finally Well in New York, even without skating in Central Park he portrays the big Apple in 13 wonderful classic ballads eventually going up tempo. His sidemen are more than supportive.

(noch) Neulinge im amerikanischen Markt Andrei Kondakov (geboren 1962 in der Ukraine, heute meist in St. Petersburg lebend, wo er auch lehrt und einen Jazzclub betreibt) und Dimitri Kolesnik, gebürtig in Leningrad, der schon über 10 Jahre in New York lebt - und bei Ron Carter studierte - und arbeitet.
