Dayne Jordan takes you to his old stomping ground of north Philly in the official video for Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a track from his recently released project with DJ Jazzy Jeff entitled Memoirs of Dayne Jordan. Directed by Cristopher Schafer, Beautiful Day serves as visual validation for Jordan’s already vividly told story. As Dayne Jordan recollects the sights and sounds of his youth with candor, unfiltered images of places and faces glide across the screen. Although Jordan has filmed videos all over the globe over the years, he thought it most fitting to tell this story from his own backyard. Scenes of Beautiful Day take place in the very homes and hallways where Jordan spent much of his time, and on actual sidewalks and alleyways where he once hung out. Equally as important are the people who can be seen throughout. Everyone in the video, adults and children alike, have real connections to Jordan and his story. With Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Dayne Jordan and Cristopher Schafer created a visual that is far from sugar-coated, yet conveys a feeling of reflection, growth, family and love.
