Andrew describes the CD this way:
“Welcome to Glass Jungle. You're now joining me on a journey that began exactly a decade ago. This project marks my ten-year anniversary of moving to New York City and in many ways, my second studio album is dedicated to this City and the wealth of fulfilling experiences it has offered. If you've spent any time in the "city that never sleeps", you've certainly found yourself immersed in various situations and emotions, inhaling a distinct energy that only this city breathes. This album embraces the paradox that is NYC: powerfully intense, yet calmly mesmerizing, all in the same afternoon. Trekking through the Big Apple, you will certainly find yourself in the midst of a jungle, encompassed by trees of glass and concrete. It can be wild and celebratory, as in Glass Jungle or Rancho Jubilee ; tranquil and reflective, a la Bach's Air or Pachelbel's Canon; or passionate and intense, as is the Song of 'Almah. Regardless of how you look at it, the melting pot of music on this album is designed to transport you to the melting pot of the world . . . so sit back, put your feet up, pour a cup of coffee, indulge in a slice of New York cheesecake, and enjoy the ride.” – Andrew Beall, August 2010, NYC
