LIBBY YORK picture
Vocalist Libby York makes an auspicious BluJazz recording debut with her CD, "Sunday in New York." John McDonough of Downbeat Magazine has awarded the recording 4 stars and says, ''Stylish and cosmopolitan, with a broad streak of lush life urbanity, Libby York has a sound that recalls, without any condescension or gratuitous nostalgia, the slightly world weary, been around the block ennui of post war Anita O'Day, Chris Connor, and Sarah Vaughn.''

Chicago jazz radio personality Neil Tesser intones in his liner notes to the CD, "York finds the complicated emotional center of a lyric, and sets it out with disarming simplicity." Gary Walker, the Music Director of WBGO, arguably the nation's foremost jazz station, remarked, "'Sunday in New York or anytime, anywhere, Libby York's voice leads outstanding musicians on new paths through the jazz evergreens.''

York was born and raised in Chicago. Her grandfather was a prominent florist there.
