On this episode, Matt Tamanini is in conversation with No. 1 Billboard jazz/pop singer and songwriter Spencer Day. Featuring songs not typically heard in a jazz context, Day’s new album “Broadway By Day” reimagines a set cross-generational showtunes with surprising and creative genre-blurring arrangements from swing to Latin.
The album will be released by Club 44 Records on Friday, Feb. 25 and it is available to pre-order or pre-save now.
In the episode, Spencer discusses the influence that being quarantined in Mexico in early 2020 had on the sound of this album, how listening to a ton of Frank Sinatra got him ready to swing for certain tracks, why “A Chorus Line” bookends the album, and much more.
