BIRTH OF THE BLUES:As a child, Jeff Lambert (Bing Crosby) hangs out in New Orleans' Basin Street, playing hot swing on his clarinet instead of the classics his father prefers. He's Inspired by an African-American group there and some years later, at the turn of the century, sets out to form a jazz band of his own. With cornetist Memphis (Brian Donlevy), singer Betty Lou Cobb (Mary Martin) and trombonist Jack Teagarden (Of the Original Dixieland Jazz Group, after which the story is patterned), he's on his way.A veritable history of jazz follows. From jump and jive to sweet romanticism, half a century of popular hits is given spectacular treatment. By the Light of the Silvery Moon is sung in a theatre with lantern slides on the screen. Singer Ruby Elzy's St. Louis Blues is backed by a chorus of eighty. And Wait Till The Sun Shines, Nellie brings Crosby and Martin together in a knockout duet.BLUE SKIES:For what Fred Astaire Had announced would be his last film, no expense was spared. This musical extravaganza boasts 30 Irving Berlin songs, 47 sets, sumptuous costumes, and a budget of $3,000,000. The result is sensational. (And, fortunately, Astaire did not retire from films!)Dancing star Jed Potter (Astaire) and singer/nightclub owner Johnny Adams (Bing Crosby) are both in love with songstress Mary' O'Hara (Joan Caulfield). She marries Johnny, but his passion for buying and selling nightclubs drives them apart. So Jed steps in, hoping to win Mary's heart - until fate steps in and changes the lives of all three. The most outstanding number is Astaire's famous Puttin' on the Ritz , a split-screen gem with a chorus of miniature Astaires tap-dancing behind him. Designed by Astaire, it took five weeks of back-breaking physical work to achieve. Other highlights find Astaire and Crosby as A Couple of Song and Dance Men, and Crosby crooning a wealth of Berlin tunes, including the Oscar nominated You Keep Coming Back Like A Song. With its superb stars and sparkling numbers, Blue Skies is one of the all-time great musicals!
Join us for a walking tour of New Orleans’ most historic neighborhood, the French Quarter. See the “Vieux Carré” through the eyes of Louisiana’s famous Free People of Color (Les Gens de Couleur Libres). In an age when most people of African descent in the New World were considered the property of others, thousands of people of color owned their own property and forged their own paths in a world that was not their own. Hear their stories. Learn of their many contributions to this beautiful culture. Learn the history of the most emblematic neighborhood of one of the United States’ most iconic cities.This tour is an exploration of old Louisiana, the Louisiana that gave birth to Jazz and Zydeco, to gumbo and jambalaya. Louisiana is technically a southern American state, but culturally Louisiana has always been the northernmost part of the Caribbean. (This tour also includes a tour of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 and of the courtyard of a beautiful antebellum French Quarter residence.)
