Summertime in New York City is a timeless track that links together the inimitable R&B approach of Brian McKnight with the soulful, sizzling jazz of Koz. There is a complexity that is present during Koz’s latest effort that ensures that listeners will have to play back the song multiple times before being able to pick up each and every nuance that is contained within. Of particular note during “Summertime…” has to be the ability for Koz to shift up the single’s tempo with considerable ease. An extended instrumental interlude provides the perfect counterpoint for a driving final repetition of the chorus.
We last covered Koz over a decade ago; check out our article about his At The Movies.
