Description Step back in time to the glory of the Parisian jazz scene which defined the era between the World Wars, as captured in the music and style of the legendary Montmartre nightclub Bricktop's. Founded by Harlem expatriate Ada Smith DuConge, Bricktop's became an international jazz mecca, drawing Stephane Grappelli, Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt, and Louis Armstrong. Pianst Bobby Short, Josephine Premice and the Bross Townsend Trio recapture the flavor of the era, while the spirit of Josephine Baker is evoked in a specially commissioned performance piece.
