The audio quality is superb, with a mix that expertly balances each component of the ensemble. Acoustic guitars ring through with great resonance, and Jim Oblon’s drums sound satisfyingly propulsive. The DVD includes the entire concert, filmed in a straightforward manner that keeps the focus squarely on the musicians. The videography is clear and efficiently lighted. The simple DVD menu offers a choice between playing the entire show or a list of individual songs. Live in New York City is tremendously satisfying as a retrospective look at Simon’s career, as well as ample evidence that he’s still in his prime.
