...Brian DuFord’s Gershwinesque New York Streetscapes, the latest in a line of lively urban evocations...the closer, a breezy, jazzy streetscape called Harlem (125th Street)...
- Oregon Arts Watch
This trio paints musical impressions of various scenes depicting life in New York. Rumble Strips captures the sensation upon entering the city for the first time, September 12th evokes the intense emotions collectively experienced on the day after 9/11 while Harlem (125th Street) grooves with the bustle of pedestrian traffic along that fabled street.
