Dancing Cheek to Cheek



Irvin Berlin’s 1935 hit “Cheek to Cheek” sung by Rita Payés with Joan Chamorro’s wonderfully talented youngsters in his Barcelona based Sant Androu Jazz Band. Set in the charming centre of Châteauneuf-du-Faou during the tenth year of the town’s incredibly successful Fest Jazz organised by Trevor Stent, the music resonated around the square.

Please excuse my rather extravagant “manoeuvres” in filming the band due to additional seating needed to cater for the growing audience – funnily enough depicted below as the first frame by YouTube but not in the movie! My thanks to Patti and Ginny for re-arranging the seating!

By the way, one of the Tuba Skinny musicians described the Sant Androu youngsters as “Scary good!” Eat your heart out Ella!
