New York State of Mind

I saw these two people (Kevin and Danny) for the first time last summer - people just stopped in their tracks, astounded by the tremendous natural quality of the singer's voice. I have been looking forward ever since then to seeing them again - so when I caught them recently I took the opportunity to take photos and a VIDEO of one entire song they did - 634-5789 - an old standard covered by many such as Wilson Pickett. Some of the singer's renditions of classic soul were really awesome. I understand they are regulars in the subway system at Times Square (a popular venue for many musicians). Appropriately they are calling themselves New York State of Mind. I hope they get "discovered" ....

OK, I watched the entire video. great stuff. You should put it on youtube. I think it would be a big hit.

Thanks for another music video, these guys and they guys on their buckets :)

Don't you think Kevin or Danny (who's the one playing in the picture) looks a bit like Thelonious Monk?

Those guys are good!

Ah... nothing like the arts on the streets in NYC.

I remember outside the grocery store on Broadway there used to be delivery boys waiting to delivery groceries on their bicycles... and they'd have the most amazing break dancing contests to pass the time.

Then when the customers walked in the store, they might be lucky enough to be serenaded by the store manager, Howie, singing one of his renditions of some old romantic ballad to entertain the customers.

"When the moon's in the sky like a big pizza pie... that's Amore"

I tell you... I haven't been that entertained by any grocery store since!
