Crazy Days in New York City
I love this song. It brings back memories of my crazy days in New York City. I was living in Manhattan. My brother, Stony Browder Jr., wrote the music. He presented me with a cassette one day and said “Give me something romantic for this one!” And so I did. It was easy. The music on the cassette was just Stony and his guitar. Unplugged before unplugged became a manufactured gimmick. Such sweet chord changes led me to that place where the heart defies the brain: LOVE-VILLE, USA.
Sitting in Central Park
And so I penned OUR LOVE WILL ALWAYS STAND in an afternoon, whilst sitting in Central Park, circa 1975. I was disappointed when Stony decided not to use it for the first Savannah Band album in the Bicentennial. In fact, he never used it at all for any of the Savannah Band albums. But I always kept it in mind.
Cherchez La Femme
Almost a decade later I produced an album called ELBOW BONES AND THE RACKETEERS and I finally got to record OUR LOVE WILL ALWAYS STAND. On this album, a singer named Frank Passalacqua delivered the vocal. Frank’s vocal style immensely influenced my alter ego, Mr. Kid Creole.
Fast forward to 2016 and the very same song is now in my stage musical, aptly called CHERCHEZ LA FEMME.
Still loverly after all these years.

KID CREOLE AND THE COCONUTS – born out of the red hot embers of DR BUZZARD’S ORIGINAL Savannah Band. In the 1970’s the Savannah Band had successfully merged the big band sound of the 1940’s (Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Louis Prima etc) with the dance floor beat of the disco era. The Kid fused the big band sound with every strain under the sun – calypso, soca, salsa, rhythm and blues, soul, jazz, funk, hip-hop, etc……with a strong accent on Caribbeanism. Kid Creole and the Coconuts thus became pioneers of what became known as mongrel music (also known as Mulatto music or Rainbow music). In other words – a delicious but strange potpourri of goodness.
Kid Creole and The Coconuts had the good fortune of working with movie directors such as Francis Ford Copolla and Taylor Hackford. They have also done collaborations with the likes of Prince, U2 and Barry Manilow. They have done command performances for Princess Diana and President Clinton and they have worked with true giants in the MUSIC BIZ UNIVERSE: Tommy Mottola (who brought Mariah Carey to fame), Seymour Stein (who brought Madonna to the attention of the world) and Chris Blackwell (who brought reggae to the rest of the world).
