New York State of Mind was originally released by Billy Joel on his 1976 album Turnstiles. It is about being happy to return to New York City after having been away and being in a New York state of mind. This is a great, laid-back jazz version of the song with Sophie giving the song an incredible Jazz treatment that, if you close your eyes, you could easily imagine yourself in a sleezy New York dive in the golden age of jazz singing, and Max Varshavsky adds in with a great sax solo. Sophie is supported by the Max Varshavsky Project: with: Max Varshavsky on sax; Torsten Goods on guitar and vocals; Manuk Ghazaryan on keyboards; Sergey Korchagin on bass; and David Sagamonyants on drums. The video was recorded at the Academitchesky Jazz-Club in Moscow, Russia.
