Welcome to the official website for the Internationally Acclaimed Jazz Vocal Group
New York Voices
We are celebrating our 30th Anniversary in high style, by releasing our new CD, Reminiscing in Tempo, on August 16, 2019.
Threading the ages, New York Voices weaves their vocal arranging and elegant point of view on melody, harmony and shape through composers they admire on their latest outing. Ellington, Corea, Brubeck, Hersch, Porter, Lennon and McCartney, Lins and Cuba’s Cervantes are the welcoming prisms for them to ring their voices into a fine tapestry of color, sound and light. Produced while celebrating their 30th year together as an ensemble, they have gathered this collection into what is a curator’s wish list for an evening’s program. Taking these compositions in their care, they tend to invert, change time signature and reharm, but never so far that the lyric doesn’t sing front and center. And with intermittent a cappella palate cleansers throughout the sequence, the listener gets to experience the set as the artist envisioned. Also included in this fine array of compositions are two from the group, allowing just enough room to insert a few originals to complete their “Reminiscing in Tempo.”
