New York for Lovers

This 11-song installment in the excellent For Lovers series features compositions cultivated from the Verve and Decca archive paying homage to the Big Apple. The lineup here is top-notch and a veritable all-star list of jazz's finest: Ella and Louis kick things off in grand fashion with "Autumn in New York," and contributions from Stan Getz, Sarah Vaughan, and Mel Tormé. The performances are consistently wonderful and ideal in a wide variety of settings, and especially ideal for those strolls around the streets of Metropolis on lazy afternoons. And for those not lucky enough to reside or visit any of the boroughs, it's the next best thing to being there.
