About the album

Concept albums are difficult projects, but guitarist Jeanfrancois Prins' trio pulls off a fine tribute to the Big Apple on this surprisingly laid back recording. The Manhattan of Prins is a lovely place, full of romance and charm, hearkening, perhaps, to an earlier era. Even "Breakfast in the Bronx" evokes nothing more than wonder and beauty. Perhaps Prins has only seen part of the City, or perhaps he chooses to see only the good, or perhaps his experiences in New York were simply too marvelous for words. Whatever the reason, and despite the blindness, Prins has produced a whale of an album, one that gently uplifts and caresses. Place him in the Joe Pass school of tasteful, absorbing music, and you will not be too much off the mark. Lee Konitz sits in on alto or soprano for a few numbers, his romantic style a perfect fit.
