“In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you’ve set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of Phil Ramone’s A&R Studios!” – Blue Note President, Don Was.
New York Is Now! can be described musically as being more modally driven rather than harmonically so. Somewhat out of his element, Coleman rises to the occasion, taking the rest of the band along for the ride.
