NORIYUKI MAKIHARA - Songs From N.Y. (2007)

NORIYUKI MAKIHARA - Songs From N.Y. (2007)
As requested, here's the other Noriyuki Makihara's 'American WestCoast Ttribute' CD released simultaneously in 2007: "Songs From N.Y.", presented many years ago on this blog.
Again the 'who is who' from the WestCoast / AOR scene were recruited to perform Makihara (Japanese songwriter) songs translated to English, this time arranged with a 'New Yorker feeling'.

Now we have Peter Beckett (PLAYER), Alex Ligertwood (METRO), Kelly Keagy (NIGHT RANGER), Richard Page (Mr. MISTER) and Mark Jordan amongst other lead singers, accompanied by talented session musicians not only from the Californian scene, but also from Nashville and New York.
Production and performances are top notch, a relaxing album to enjoy these gifted voices and light AOR / smooth WestCoast / poppy songs.

Hey Thanks Alot! :-)
Q: Is There A DVD Coming with this Album?
Just Curious what's the Added Value


Camelblue said...

Yes it is, on both releases. It's just a DVD-A, same music. DVD-Audio features a 5.1-channel surround sound option.

I See CB, Thanks For the enlightenment.
Love this collection of songs and artists.
Alex Ligertwood (ex-Santana as well)
is one of the greatest vocalist of all times, to my mind.
