A musical journey through the streets of New York landing at addresses where music history was made. We make a stop at Tin Pan Alley (28th Street/Fifth Ave.) where The Great American Songbook was born and continue to The Dakota Building by Central Park (1W/72nd street) where John Lennon spent his last years. We get on board the A-train where Duke Ellington found his inspiration to one of his most famous jazz tunes and then we continue travelling to 107th street in Queens where Louis Armstrong lived most of his life and then lastly touching down at Apollo Theatre (253W/125th street) in Harlem.
The Streets of New York is a collaboration with Swedish/American jazz vocalist Mary Nelson and The Velocity Duo from New York with Lauren Lee on vocals and piano and Charley Sabatino on bass. The music from the project is a selection of pop and jazz songs in new and personal arrangements.
