The St. Regis New York was transformed into a 1920s-era jazz club, last Wednesday, to celebrate the debut of Jamie Cullum’s new album Interlude. Countless legendary jazz musicians have performed at the newly revived St. Regis jazz club from Count Basie to Duke Ellington. To go along with event designer Bronson van Wycke’s roaring twenties décor, cocktails and canapés authentic to the decade were served while a cigarette girl passed out candy and copies of the album after Cullum’s set.
This one-night-only event marked the launch of “Jazz Legends at St. Regis,” an ongoing program that invites today’s best jazz musicians to perform music from the 1930s and 40s. Guests like Georgina Chapman, Christine Branski, Dylan Lauren, Gina Gershon, Bronson van Wyck, Thom Filicia, Jake Davies, Tom Jaems, Joyce Varvatos, Brett Ratner, Daniel Benedict, Anthony Ingham, and Hermann Elger were all in attendance for this jazz-age fête.
