From the Press Release:
During the first leg of Paul Simon’s triumphant, 2011 U.S. tour, he thrilled hometown fans with a special club performance at New York City’s historic Webster Hall.  The show, captured on film for PAUL SIMON LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY, is set for release on September 18th, 2012 and presents this iconic artist working at the peak of his artistic and creative powers in an unusually intimate setting.

PAUL SIMON LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY (Hear Music/Concord Music Group) recorded in superb high-definition by director Martyn Atkins along with sterling audio mixed by Phil Ramone and Andy Smith, will be available in three formats: 2-CD/1-DVD special package, Blu-Ray and Standard DVD.

The 20-song, 90-minute set list was drawn from his legendary career and includes several songs that haven’t been performed live in many years.  “Kodachrome,” “Mother and Child Reunion,” “Gone At Last” and “The Obvious Child” are just some of the highlights as well as songs from Simon’s most recent album, 2011’s So Beautiful or So What (Hear Music/Concord Music Group) including “Dazzling Blue,” “Rewrite,” “The Afterlife” and the album’s propulsive title track.

Joining Paul on the show is a stellar band of musicians including Cameroonian guitarist Vincent Nguini, guitarist/drummer Jim Oblon, pianist Mick Rossi, saxophonist/ keyboardist Andrew Snitzer, bassist Bakithi Kumalo, guitarist Mark Stewart, master percussionist Jamey Haddad and multi-instrumentalist Tony Cedras.
