The Crest Theatre, a downtown Sacramento landmark since 1913 when it was a 2,000-seat vaudeville theater, was the setting for this edition of Riverwalk Jazz. The Crest, which now hosts classic films, comedy, and music, is one of several concert halls hosting the world’s largest traditional jazz festival, which has been held every Memorial Day weekend since 1974.
This radio show focuses on jazz standards, which first gained attention as movie soundtrack music and then made their way into the playlists of hot jazz bands, where their popularity has lasted for decades. Rebecca Kilgore, a jazz singer from Portland, and Jon-Erik Kellso, a trumpeter from New York, are among the special guests.
Rebecca Kilgore, who performs with her own band BED, which includes guitarist Eddie Erickson and trombonist Dan Barrett, is a Festival regular. She’s a fan of classic American popular music, and she’s released albums on the Arbors, Audiophile, and Jump labels, including collaborations with pianist and composer Dave Frishberg and Bucky and John Pizzarelli. Becky Kilgore appears often on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross as a guest performer. Jon-Erik Kellso, a native of Detroit, is a well-known ‘old school’ classic jazz trumpeter in New York, where he often performs with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks at Sofia’s restaurant near Times Square. At the Ear Inn, a historic bar and restaurant in lower Manhattan, Jon co-leads his own critically acclaimed band, the EarRegulars, with Matt Munisteri on guitar. Kellso can also be found on a number of CDs, including TV and movie soundtracks.
Taco: putting on the ritz
Poor Harlemites are described as dressing up elegantly, parading down Lenox Avenue, and otherwise “putting on the Ritz” in the original lyric. The idiom refers to behaving in a lavish, extravagant manner, particularly when displaying one’s wealth ostentatiously. The luxury hotel chain known as the Ritz is referred to by the name Ritz.
The lyric gently mocks a certain type of person who, in order to appear wealthy, spends more than they can afford, including their last two bits (25 cents), and suggests that seeing them act in this manner may be entertaining.
In the 1946 film Blue Skies, Fred Astaire released an updated lyric version, with Berlin rewriting lines containing terms that described those targeted in jest by their skin color or assumed Deep South roots (high browns, Lulu Belle, from down the levee), and the location of their revels shifted from Lenox Avenue in Harlem to Park Avenue. The two lyric versions can be found on pages 262 and 263 of the book The Complete Lyrics of Irving Berlin, edited by Robert Kimball and Linda Emmet (2001).
