Chesky Records is excited to introduce a name we feel will one day be in their company...Camille Thurman. On her Chesky Records debut, Thurman shows her versatility with stunning performances on both saxophone and vocals. The multi-talented Camille Thurman is an award-winning composer, a formidable saxophonist, and a second-place winner of the prestigious Sarah Vaughan Vocal Competition. She has performed with artists ranging from Dr. Billy Taylor, George Coleman, Lew Tabackin, and George Benson, to Chaka Khan, Alicia Keys, and Missy Elliot. She recently made her Jazz at Lincoln Center debut during the Generations in Jazz Festival, leading a killer quartet as she sang, played, and showcased original compositions and some classics. She also recently gave an improvised scatting performance during Battle of the Big Bands that brought down the house in The Appel Room. The inaugural release of the new Virtual Audio Series from Chesky Records, this album was recorded in front of a live audience at Rockwood Music Hall in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan, using a single binaural microphone. This technique places the listener in the middle of a live show. If you didn't know any better, you'd swear you can smell the perfume of the young lady seated to your left.

"Right from the start Chesky Records had a sound. David Chesky set out to make “aural photographs” of each session, capturing as much of the sound of being there as the technology allowed, continually pushing it forward. Every note of every session was recorded “live,” there were no overdubs, no fixing it in the mix. What went down at the session, with some of the world’s greatest musicians, was in the CD, LP, or later on, high-resolution digital download. Chesky mostly recorded in great sounding acoustic spaces, namely churches and concert halls, with the earliest sessions conducted in the legendary, and sorely missed, RCA/BMG studios in midtown Manhattan. Every session presented unique challenges, but David Chesky and his engineers, first Bob Katz, then Miguel Kertsman, Barry Wolifson, and for the last decade or so, Nicholas Prout, continued to advance the state of the recording art. We hope you enjoy the music as much as we did recording it!" - Steve Guttenberg CHESKY WEBSITE | SIGN UP FOR CHESKY NEWSLETTER
Computer Audiophile Users get 25% off on to the sun and all the cities in between, from City of the Sun, using code CPUCITY on HDtracks. Flamenco with brainy post rock - and, just FYI, the former has the upper hand." - Paolo De Gregorio, The Deli Magazine "I have put “City of the Sun” in my library of top 25 albums that I use to audition and review high-end audio gear" - Malcolm Gomes, Canada HiFi Magazine "Their rise from NYC subway buskers to selling out local venues and going on a cross-continental tour through the US and Canada in the few years they’ve been active is hugely impressive and should make the release of to the sun and all the cities in between a success." - Nick Cusworth, Heavy Blog is Heavy "it's easy to forget that a true high-resolution title starts as a high-resolution recording, and reminding us of just how good an audio recording can be. Couple that with a first-rate set of musicians, careful engineering using a binaural microphone system, and the result is City of the Sun - to the sun and all the cities in between, a tour-de-force of acoustic guitars" - Harris Fogel, Mac Edition Radio "There is youthful joy here, a dance of some gifted musicians with their instruments, and the one-of-a-kind camaraderie that comes with being in a band together, and making music from soaring souls" - David Robinson, Positive Feedback Beginning their journey in scattered regions of the world and coming together performing in the subways and streets of New York City, City of the Sun draws its roots from across the world as well as across the genres. On their debut album, experience music that will leave you in trance. A mix of modern post-rock ambience and frenetic flamenco style guitar work, to the sun and all the cities in between crosses the generational gap and proves you don’t need vocals to captivate. City of the Sun is John Pita, Avi Snow and Zach Para. With two guitars, a box, and bells, they create a sound that is far greater than the sum of those parts. Their music has been called “a reinvention of acoustic music.” It's instrumental and worldly, sweeping from widescreen post-rock dynamics to gypsy jazz syncopations, "they define experiential music." Formed in NYC in early 2010, the trio has blazed a trail through the city playing everywhere from street corners and lofts as Sofar Sounds alumni, to sold-out hotspots like Rockwood Music Hall, Brooklyn Bowl, Mercury Lounge, and The Gramercy Theatre. They've shared stages with a diverse array of artists including Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Marky Ramone, Matisyahu, Gregg Allman, and Greensky Bluegrass. City of the Sun has also traveled abroad to perform for exclusive TEDx showcases and TED Talks.
