Trumpeter Marvin Stamm and pianist Mike Holober just ended a duo concert at the library in Nyack, a Hudson River village north of New York City. The music was streamed live on the internet and is ready for viewing on the Nyack Library’s website. I snagged this screenshot as Holober and Stamm were launching into the Bill Evans composition “Funkallero.”
The concert included, among other pieces, Raye and DePaul’s “Star Eyes,” Michel LeGrand’s “You Must Believe in Spring,” Cole Porter’s “I Love You,” Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Caminhos Cruzados” and a piquant Stamm original based on “In a Mellotone,” which Duke Ellington wrote on the harmonies of “Rose Room”—a triple play. Great fun. The internet stream has the entire concert, including listeners milling around and chatting during the intermission, the sponsor’s announcement and people schmoozing when it’s over. It’s almost like being there. You may see someone you recognize. Production values are minimal; one camera on a static shot. Audio quality is excellent. What more do you need?
