Four years have passed since Libby York delivered the sweet, sublime Sunday in New York. Now she’s back with another prime assortment of standards and a fresh assortment of accompanists. On Sunday, she united with a trio led by pianist Renee Rosnes. This time around, Rosnes is still on the scene, but as production assistant, with York surrounded by a piano-less quartet featuring Howard Alden, who also shaped the album’s soft, elegant arrangements, on guitar (and paired with fellow guitarist Russell Malone on three tracks), plus bassist Jon Burr, drummer/percussionist Vanderlei Pereira and cornet virtuoso Warren Vaché.
