New York Sessions is the first recording collaboration between Dan White, Chris Ott and Jon Lampley. The three met in Columbus, Ohio while attending Ohio State. White, Ott, and Lampley have been performing their own original compositions and arrangements over the past two years. In December of 2011, with the help of a research grant from The Ohio State University, they traveled to Brooklyn, New York to perform and record New York Sessions. There is no easy way to describe the album as a whole. Each piece tells its own story, each with its own twists and turns . The connective tissue that exists throughout the entire work is an emphasis on different rhythmic grooves and dynamic solos that weave through sophisticated arrangements. Half of the album contains originals by White and Lampley. "Hip Mr. Henderson" is a piece that grew out of a solo played by Joe Henderson. It contains melodic lines of Mr. Henderson
