City of Peace Instrumentals II

City of Peace will appeal mainly to fans of smooth jazz, though the piano track featuring Teresa Scanlan (Miss America 2011) takes the standard “Chop­sticks” on a playful, high-speed joyride. “Streets of Light” (featuring saxophonist Jerry Marcellino) suggests the mood of a rainy Manhattan Friday night, while the reverb-drenched album closer “Streams of Mercy” uses watery textures and string scraping to craft an evocative tone poem.
