On An Evening of New York Songs and Stories, Suzanne Vega revisits some of the most iconic songs in her repertoire as well as more hidden gems in a stunning live recording produced by her longtime guitarist Gerry  Leonard, mixed by Grammy Award winning engineer Kevin Killen and mastered by Grammy Award winner, Bob Ludwig.
Recorded at New York City’s famed Café Carlyle in early 2019, An Evening of New York Songs and Stories includes both familiar songs like "Luka" and "Tom’s Diner" and deep cuts from her catalogue like "Frank and Ava" and "Ludlow Street". The mix of repertoire also features a cover of her late friend Lou Reed’s "Walk on the Wild Side."
Of the album, Vega commented, "It is always a pleasure to play at the Café Carlyle in New York City, where this album was recorded. It is a small exclusive club that has hosted legends from Eartha Kitt to Judy Collins, and is also known to be the place where Jackie Kennedy met Audrey Hepburn."
