Deftly sidestepping confining musical categories; fashioning an eclectic, accessible and wholly original sound FROM a spectrum of influences and inspirations; opening up new horizons of contemporary jazz with richly textured urban, soul and R&B elements, Steve Cole has set a standard for innovative artistry and pure craftsmanship on his new Warner Bros. Records release, NY LA. Steve Cole's NY LA is a collection of ten new songs FROM the acclaimed composer and saxophonist that both consolidates his position in the front ranks of jazz instrumentalists, and takes a bold step over some new and unexpected musical territory.
