New York Day sung by Santino Fontana is a lush, melodic ballad written for the album Artists In Residence, a collection of brand-new songs written and performed by members of the theatre community (all from their homes). It’s a tune that might have been sung back in the 40s or 50s by a young Frank Sinatra, or by a female singer like Dinah Shore or Doris Day.
