Alfred Music – #24669
A musical portrait of Manhattan's cityscape, Metroplex opens with a vision of the New York skyline, tall buildings, and concrete canyons. This leads to an urban jazz scene in one of Harlem's clubs. Finally, the music takes us on a wild taxi ride through the heavy traffic of this incredible city. The skyline is seen once more as we leave Manhattan, hopefully to return again soon.
