While just about any garage rock band that merely thought about recording a single has had their history documented in some form, the same cannot be said for countless disco and funk outfits that existed for short periods of time during the ‘70s. Ahzz would be one of those outfits for which little is known. A gliding, shimmering, dancefloor instrumental with lots of dub-style knob tweakings and a heart-stopping breakdown, the eight-minute "New York Moving" is one of the finest nuggets in the archive of Peter Brown and Patrick Adams' numerous label catalogs. Released on the producers' Land of Hits label in 1980, the song has thankfully remained in circulation thanks to Counterpoint's Disco Juice, Vol. 2 compilation, which – like the first volume – documented Adams' and Brown's independent output.
