Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Never has such a stellar cast of International Super Star Pianist been assembled before. Hear Leon Fleisher, Dick Hyman, Paul Shaffer and more pay tribute to the city that nurtured them as they each perform in their own inimitable style one great New York Song. Also on the CD are legendary jazzers, Frank Owens and Lee Musiker, cabaret star Billy Stritch, Axel Tosca, from the New York Studio Scene, Robbie Kondor, Bette Sussman, George Whitty, Glen Roven, and topping it all off is the ORIGNAL DEMO recorded by Kander and Ebb of their greatest hit, Theme from "New York, New York."
