Micah Barnes: New York Stories l LadyDpiano Review

If you're looking for some good sounds and want to invest in your music library, I would like to introduce you to Micah Barnes (Canadian jazz-singer-songwriter) and his newly released album, New York Stories. I think everyone has a story of their own, and Micah shares his love affair with New York through some sensational song writing. I LOVE this album!

I can't stop playing these jazz tunes and if you like jazz then you're sure to become a fan! Micah's band can be heard on the following tracks and you can purchase some or all mp3s by clicking on the links.

The first single "New York Story" shot to the top of the Jazz charts in both Canada and the USA and resulted in Micah being the Toronto Indie Awards best Jazz Act of 2014. If you listen closely, you'll hear many of the songs  incorporating rhythms of the Cotton Club, the Brill Building, The Apollo Theatre and classic Broadway.
