What good is melody, what good is music
If it ain't possessin' something sweet
It ain't the melody, it ain't the music
There's something else that makes the tune complete
(Irving Mills, Duke Ellington)
Welcome! Ladies and Gentlemen. Welcome. Prepare to be transported to a different era -- an era that transcends the past and the future -- a timeless space governed by music and love. A space where rhythm is king and feeling is queen. The music is jazz and the dance is swing. Jazz is a music of head and heart; swing is a dance that's in the body and the soul.
Savoy, the home of sweet romance,
Savoy, it wins you with a glance,
Savoy, gives happy feet a chance to dance.
How my heart is singing,
(1934) Benny Goodman, Chick Webb, Edgar Sampson, Andy Razaf
