New York Album is an album by saxophonist Art Pepper recorded in 1979 at the sessions that produced So in Love but not released on the Galaxy label until 1985.
Art Pepper’s New York Album hews closer to what some nostalgically call “the old Art Pepper,” for it was this session that brought out the formidable bebopper Art always was. Brisk and bright, this is jazz, sweet and pure. And so for this Analogue Productions DSD release, we didn’t mess with perfection. Gus Skinas from the Super Audio Center produced New York Album and So In Love for DSD from flat transfers from the original analog master tapes that were remixed from the multi-track tapes and transferred to 2-track analog by Rik Pekkonen and John Koenig. For The Intimate Art Pepper Skinas authored the DSD tracks from the remaster by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman created for the 2003 Analogue Productions SACD reissue.
