NYSQ Sets, Upsets, and Resets Standards
As the group's name implies, most of their material comes from either the Great American Songbook or from classic jazz composers, such as Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, or Hank Mobley (all of whom are represented on this album). And, as they have done on all their recording and on their numerous gigs (in the United States, Europe, and Asia), these musicians approach the songs with fresh ears and ideas.
