"I ordered this without really knowing what to expect -- a 'live' concert recording perhaps? -- but the final product did not disappoint.
I've been a fan of Peter's music since his debut album release, and caught his performances at a showcase in Singapore followed by a Rome concert a few months later.
His Live In New York DVD features a comprehensive collection of all his famous works, from I Changed The Rules to Sway to St. Louis Blues and On The Moon. Filmed outdoors on a small neighbourhood street in NYC, it starts off in the day, then mellows into a beautiful sunset, before picking up the tempo as the stars emerge.
Lots of great energy here, as Peter jams with his excellent band and displays obvious enjoyment in his mega-watt smiles and rhythmic head-bopping. The sound quality on this high-definition disc is amazing, so make sure you watch it in the evening in a nice, quiet setting for maximum enjoyment.
I especially love his performances of Sway, You Don't Know Me and The Girl I Knew ( the last a bonus track and as yet unreleased ).
Guaranteed to satisfy all Peter Cincotti fans adequately. But I'm still hoping for a proper concert recording in the near future. An appreciative 'live' audience would be the icing on the cake."
The moon is a swinging place thanks to Peter Cincotti

"What a joy it is to watch Peter Cincotti and his band on this great DVD "Live in New York"! Peter breathes new life into the songs from both his debut album as well as his most recent release, "On The Moon" which is included with the DVD. You can hear the Ray Charles influence on "The Girl I Knew". So much so that I was certain it was one of "The Genius"'s songs! What a pleasant surprise to learn that the song was written by Peter himself! The performances are nothing short of excellent. I guarantee, "A Night in Tunisia" will leave you speechless! In this world of lip sync and lackluster deliveries of songs, Peter Cincotti is like a fine glass of Cabernet after far too many years of grape juice. And like Caberbet, he will contiue to grow better with time."
Musical Gift From The Universe

"Yesterday was my lucky day! Out on a walk (and out of the blue)
I found this DVD/CD package, still shrink-wrapped, on a street
corner along with other stuff someone had left there.
As I love music and especially watching it performed,
I snapped it up. I had never heard of Peter Cincotti
before, but the cover looked very promising. This is
one case where the contents more than live up to the
I played the DVD that evening. I listened to all the songs,
including the bonus tracks. Then I listened to all the main songs
and a couple of the bonus tracks again. I couldn't believe my
luck in finding this gem. A musical gift from the universe, indeed!
This is not just good music, it's transcendent. Peter and
his band work beautifully together. Someone here posted
that Peter's inspiration is what makes it happen. He sure
is doing something right--they all are!
I enjoy all the songs, and in particular
Peter's songs, On The Moon and He's Watching.
I did a bit of digging today, and learned that (like myself) Peter is a Cancer sun sign (July 11), ruled by the Moon. So appropriate!
The genre of the music is hard to categorize. Bluesy,jazzy... the most apt
label I can come up with is "trippy."
Peter's piano playing is mind-boggling, his singing smooth and expressive, and his energy and enjoyment are infectious, I found myself laughing
along with him at certain high points.
I am very grateful that I (literally) found this, and I look forward to
hearing and seeing much more from this prodigiously talented young man and
his amazing band.

"Peter Cincotti is a great pianist and singer; his voice is full of emotion and very sexy. I am so amazed at his arrangements, especially the upbeat "I Love Paris"; I can never sit still and always feel like dancing. From fast songs to slow songs, he draws me in. It doesn't hurt that he's charismatic and quite dashing as well. His band is also superb and beyond awesome. I wish there were more interviews on the DVD, but I would recommend it absolutely."
