NYFA Collection Innova #233 Releasing 9.28.10
“Musicologists of the distant future won’t be the only ones astonished to discover Innova’s 5CD set, The NYFA Collection. It brings together in one fat jewel box a trove of musical gems that document a golden age of a classic culture; a quarter of a century’s musical output, all grown in the fertile creative soils of New York, and judged by its artistic peers to be the best of its day. In a field glutted with all kinds of musical chatter, this six-hour, NEA-funded set sorts and distills, juggles and organizes, sifts and curates, some of the most notable artists worthy of your attention.”
