"New York Rags FULL of riches."
WBGO Radio  

"This is certainly among the finest piano recordings ever made..."This music and recording deserve the highest of high fidelity and that's just what the 192/24 download delivers." 
The Absolute Sound

"combines classical, jazz, and Chesky's quirky personality in a series of short vignettes that are quintessentially New York." Stereophile Magazine

Artistic virtuosity and entrepreneurial vision rarely reside within the same person, but David Chesky has long ventured seamlessly between those two worlds. As a composer, musician and recording artist, three-time Grammy nominee Chesky bridges classical music, jazz and other genres, crafting a unique hybrid that he calls "Urban Orchestral" music.
