Does every jazz lover not secretly long for the old days of smoky jazz clubs, where the very best music was played by the legends of yore? On August 7 at De Observant, join us for a trip down memory lane through the music of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Billy Holiday and Nina Simone. You might struggle to resist the urge to dance.. But it wasn’t just these grand dames performances and their voices, but also the catchy songs from the Great American Songbook such as My Baby Just Cares For Me and What A Difference A Day Makes that immortalized them.
New York Round Midnight’s Grand Ladies of Swing program brings you back to New York’s most famous nightclub, The Cotton Club.
