Not Your Typical New Yorker is a debut CD from composer-pianist Joseph Diamond, and it is a genuine pleasure to introduce this young pianist to JAZZREVIEW.COM. Joseph Diamond is a find, a new discovery in the Latin Jazz piano music world, and his talents are great. Joseph Diamond has the smooth, sensitive skills of a Peter Nero coupled with the techniques of a Bill Evans blended with the artistry of a Dave Brubeck, and comes out uniquely his own sound & interpreter of jazz sounds in a Latin vein! He is that good!
This is one new jazz pianist I would suggest you get his CD right away and start enjoying his special blends of musical adventures! His fellow musicians compliment his sound, and visa versa. This is a perfect CD with everything working well together, and each performer contributing to the whole colorful landscape of musical sounds!

Each song is a special gem of musical enjoyment. There is a wonderful jazzy, sweet, sensuous, lively, joyful feel to these songs written and performed by Joseph Diamond. "Not Your Typical New Yorker" is a jazz classic in the making! This CD deserves a lot of air play time!
