AllMusic Review by

A sensual rhapsody about New York City living with text by Jayne Cortez (" i am new york city of blood police and fried pies"), this chamber piece shows Johnson in a more melodious and somewhat more "uptown" mode than in his previous compositions, the whole texture grown from a three-note motive, but still with an underlying hip beat. Beautifully performed.
