A taste of Hollywood’s jazz

The music of the 30s and 40s was dominated by swing parties, long cigarettes and vibrant music blossoming in underground jazz bars. Who wouldn’t like to relive those days when gatherings were swirly dance parties?

Offering a taste of that epoch is a special musical evening on Thursday. Lovers of old jazz and classic Hollywood films should head to the Tudor Inn in Larnaca for a night reminiscing the golden songs of the jazz repertoire used in Classic Hollywood movies.

Live music by the well-established Steppin’ Out Jazz Band will pay tribute legendary old films and their jazz soundtracks. Think Casablanca’s (1942) As Time Goes By, Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times (1936) with the song Smile and The Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland’s most famous hit Over the Rainbow. The repertoire will also include songs from films featuring Ginger Rodgers, Fred Astaire, Lena Horne and Bing Crosby.

With the help of the band, the audience will travel back in time and relive those days. Vocalist Alice Ayvazian with an incredible range of expression and masterful sense of swing will be joined by Konstantinos Efraimidis (clarinet), and Alexis Kasinos (guitar) with their wealth of experience, expertise and exciting arrangements of timeless jazz songs.

Get ready for a wonderful journey through time and reserve your seat as the space is limited.
