This Holiday season Micah Barnes and his Trio (Daniel Barnes drums, Russ Boswell bass) take you on a musical tour through New York City in celebration of their upcoming disc "New York Stories". Join the former Nylons Baritone and his band as they visit legendary musical landmarks such as The Brill Building, The Savoy Ballroom, The Cotton Club, The Apollo Theatre, and Broadway's Time Square with songs taking the audience on a journey through the musical history of The Big Apple.

New York has long been an inspiration to musicians in the Jazz world so it's no surprise that when Micah began writing his upcoming disc there he found the energy and the musical history of the city deeply inspiring. Living in an apartment right on the site of the legendary Savoy Ballroom and writing in a piano studio near Time Square, Micah found a deep connection to the Jazz and Blues standards written in the 30's and 40's, by folks such as Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Howard Arlen, many of which debuted at The Cotton Club or in Broadway shows. The creative explosion of Doo Wop and early R & B written and produced at The Brill Building and heard at The Apollo Theatre was also a huge influence on Micah as he composed the romantic songs that make up his upcoming release ""New York Stories". Release date March 2014
