I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Baby…

Thanks to a tip from singer Tamar the night before, I ended up going down the stairs of Sophia's on 46th Street last night, and it was like time travel, stepping into another era. The Nighthawks, an 11-piece band dressed in tuxes playing music of the 20s and 30s, and were they good! The dancing was spectacular. There was a tuba. A guest singer, Ginger Something from LA came onstage and did I wanna be loved by you, boop-boop-ee-do to perfection. The crowd 50s, 60s, even a few ancient 70 year olds. Dancers younger. Room full, fine ambience. Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Kate Smith (Fine and dandy, sugar candy), Gershwin. I had clam pasta at the bar that was excellent.
