Live: Chris Stamey gets intricate (Video)

Posted by on Wed, Feb 13, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Chris Stamey's Lovesick Blues seems to be a breezy album, but keep listening, and notice the layers of depth. Going into Friday's performance at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro, I was interested to see how they would pull off those arrangements live. Backed by an 18-piece band, Chris Stamey and company delivered a concert not like one I've seen in recent memory. It was meticulous, an onslaught of meticulousness characteristic of Stamey's high expectations for himself and whatever he presents. The evening began with Skylar Gudasz stretching out on the piano (and joined by Casey Toll) for a strong dose of jazz vocals.
