Christopher Cross will release soon an album titled "“The Café Carlyle Sessions" recorded during shows in April and May, 2008, at the legendary Café Carlyle in the Carlyle Hotel in New York City
Christopher says: "The concept for this album came out of my shows in April and May, 2008, at the legendary Café Carlyle in the Carlyle Hotel in New York City. I decided that, given the intimacy of the 80-seat room, I would perform the music in a style different from my usual pop rhythm section format."
"My friend and arranger, Chris Walden introduced me to some amazingly talented musicians in NY -- Andy Ezrin on Piano and David Mann on Winds -- and LA-based Kevin Axt on Bass. I used my regular drummer, Dave Beyer, and I play only acoustic guitar. The solo work is handled by Andy and David., and we recorded the 15 tracks live in LA in 2 days."
