The Sound Of New York - Kenyon Hopkins

The Sounds Of New York
A Music-Sound Portrait
Written By Kenyon Hopkins
Produced By Creed Taylor
The Aristocrat Series
ABC 2269

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art.

This was an expensive album to produce. The book-fold cover features a one page insert for the Hopkins and Taylor copy they thought necessary to include.

This project has Creed Taylor's stamp all over it. If you are familiar and enjoy Taylor's wild Shock and Panic, Son Of Shock projects you'll dig this record. The same interesting blend of "found sounds" and sort of "off kilter" big band mood music will be heard here.
