The Palm Court Theatre Orchestra originally formed in 1978 and were an internationally acclaimed company of top musicians who specialized in performing authentic arrangements of Salon, Theatre and Dance Orchestra music from the era of 1900-1945.
Their music was not only sweet and sentimental but unexpectedly robust, syncopated, sparkling and humorous. They also displayed a talent for singing, whistling, tap dancing, very dramatic acting, fox trotting and wicked tangoing.
"Puttin On the Ritz" was released in 1986 and the arrangements of the songs are all genuinely from the 1920's and 1930's using a violin trio, as well as saxophones and brass, that give that unique, evocative period sound of the Great Dance Band days.
