  • Manhattan Melody —Chris Stamey & the ModRec Orchestra

    4:40

    A video by Michael Harrison Sparks. As recorded by Django Haskins (singer), Branford Marsalis (tenor sax), Dan Davis (drums), Jason Foureman (acoustic bass), Matt Douglas (clarinet), Jim Crew and Chris Stamey (pianos), and the ModRec Orchestra

    Video Cast In the combo: Django Haskins, Faith Jones (bg singing), Elijah Freeman (tenor sax), Rob Ladd (drums), Jason Foureman (bass), Chris Stamey (piano and beard). In the orchestra: Laura Thomas, Kim Hagan, Ayman Bejjani, Madeline Nelson, George Neilson, Jakob Bower, Rachel Kiel, Millie McGuire, Damon Blair. PA to Mr. Sparks: Julia Stamey. Venue liaison: Jay Harper

    Liner Note: It’s all about that excitement of landing in NYC for the first time, in any era, with saucer-sized eyes. Branford Marsalis came over early one morning and blew through the song’s corridors like he was born to it, and the second take was “it.” We both knew he had nailed it, and we didn’t look back. Originally there was a version of the lyric that referenced “Dizzy” instead of “Wynton,” and “FAO Schwartz instead of just “Christmas shopping,” but I wanted to have it be a song for us, today, and ended up with this “High Line” version. (Maybe I’ll update it further, down the line, as the city continues to shape-shift.)

    I’d already written a number of these new tunes for New Songs for the 20th Century (Omnivore), and some of them were, frankly, getting pretty dense and complicated, harmonically—at least for a rocker like me. But one day I started thinking about rhythm instead, about Irving Berlin, fascinatin' Gershwin, and even the oft-neglected Harry Warren—how they could take the simplest riff and spin something magnetic from it. This is when the Tin Pan Alley-ish “Manhattan Melody (That’s My New York)” showed up. (Harry W. had had a failed project at the end of his life called Manhattan Melody, and, sadly, everyone leaves Harry out of the “best of” lists and mentions Berlin instead; I think I wanted to give him a shout-out, too!)

  • Chris Stamey - You N Me N XTC

    4:33

    From the album Lovesick Blues, available now at iTunes: and Yep Roc:

  • Bleecker Street Serenade

    3:51

    I arrived at LaGuardia the day after Christmas, 2019, on an early-morning flight out of NC, running a fever, about to start rehearsing for a gig with two of my favorite musicians, Ariel Pocock and Tony Scherr. The gig itself was a bit disastrous, as I was quite sick by the time it rolled around. But that morning, as I got off the plane, I felt that strange magic again, of walking into New York wide-eyed, looking for miracles in the rubble, the way I would when I was a kid. The feeling that anything could happen. I wrote this song as I walked to baggage claim and then down into the subway, then finished it a few weeks later down at 30A in Florida.

    This rough-mix version, which despite the excellent musicianship is probably just a demo to be recut one day, was recorded by the Fellow Travelers a few months later, right before it all went down in March 2020. I couldn't really put it out when people were fleeing Manhattan in droves!; now, as they are tiptoeing or running back in, it seems okay, though. The city is back. Dan Davis is on the explosive drums, Peter Holsapple on organ, Charles Cleaver on accordion, I play 12- and 6-string guitars and bass, and the A-list brass are Evan Ringel, trombone; Ben Robinson, trumpets; Matt Douglas, baritone sax; Will Campbell, alto sax.
