New York Connection is an album by American musician Tom Scott released on Ode Records in December 1975 (as Ode SP-77033), with a UK release following in April 1976.[3] It entered the Billboard 200 on 20 December to begin a chart stay of 25 weeks, peaking at number 42.[4]

In contrast with the Los Angeles-based Scott's previous projects, the nine-song set features New York musicians such as Hugh McCracken, Richard Tee, Eric Gale and Steve Gadd. Following their North American tour together in November−December 1974, George Harrison also makes a contribution, on the track "Appolonia (Foxtrata)".[5]
