Easter Parade

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hspjArtIPU&hl=en]

A 1935 recording of Leo Reisman's Orchestra "Stop Press" version of Irving Berlin's elegant society jazzband number from the 1933 review "As Thousands Cheer". Berlin's tune was later cemented into our collective psyche by the silver screen duet with Fred Astaire and Judy Garland in their first and only film together ... "Easter Parade!" (of course! :)

And if the high-society groove isn't your scene, you can croon it smooth like Bing, or you can jazz it up or not. Its still a hit. Happy Easter!
