Celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year, New York Voices is the Grammy© Award winning vocal ensemble renowned for their excellence in jazz and the art of group singing. Like the great groups that have come before, such as Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, Singers Unlimited, and Manhattan Transfer, they have learned from the best and taken the art form to new levels.

The WDR Big Band in Cologne, Germany is one of the best big bands on the planet and every musician is a stand out. This live performance was captured in 2008 and is a collection of New York Voices old favorites, current in-rotation tunes and a few never recorded and/or new arrangements. There are lots of featured soloists from the big band that break up the usual vocal palette and make it an all together different NYV experience.
