59E59 Theaters Gets Jazzy with The Anderson Twins

59E59 Theaters is known for bringing downtown theatre to the upper East side.  Sometimes provocative, but always inventive, productions playing at 59E59 never cease to showcase the unbridled potential of Off-Broadway theater.  Future jazz maestros The Anderson Twins are no strangers to 59E59 Theaters, once headlining every Thursday evening at the theaters’ bar.  And this fall they are starring in their own production recreating the music of The Dorsey Brothers in The Anderson Twins Play The Fabulous Dorseys!

Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey were jazz musicians and fronted their own band, The Dorsey Brothers, until they fell out in 1935, disbanding their group and pursuing their own musical endeavors.  The brothers reunited the band in 1945, made a biopic about their lives and had their own TV series.  During the late 1920s and early 1930s, The Dorsey Brothers were among the most sought-after musicians in New York City.   Tommy Dorsey died in 1956, with Jimmy Dorsey passing away in 1957.  The Dorsey Brothers are still considered two of the most influential jazz artists and band leaders of the Big Band and Swing era.

Playing at venues such as The Blue Note and Lincoln Center, twins Pete and Will Anderson have already cemented a name for themselves in the jazz scene.  Just like The Dorsey Brothers, The Anderson Twins have been playing since they were small children.  And as leaders of their own sextet, they are the perfect candidates to bring story of The Dorsey Brothers to a stage.

The Anderson Twins Play The Fabulous Dorseys!  is an exciting mixture of mixed media, showcasing the best and worst of The Dorsey Brothers.  The Anderson Twins provide dialogue and the soundtrack as snippets of the film The Fabulous Dorseys tell the story of The Dorsey Brothers musical beginnings, rise as musicians and band leaders as well as how sibling rivalry kept them at odds since they were kids and ultimately led to the disbanding of the group at the height of their fame.   The true star of this production is the music, which are not only jazz classics, but American standards.  The theater is set up like a club complete with tables and patrons are allowed to bring in their drinks.  Even if one was unfamiliar with the music of that era, they will still appreciate the wonderful live show of The Anderson Twins Sextet.  Whether you are a jazz buff or novice, anyone that loves to hear music from real musicians will enjoy this production.  I found it to be extremely entertaining.

Protect Ya Neck with Mur

As the wind blows in obvious signs of fall, I couldn’t help but think about the whirlwind of ready to wear I saw Fashion Week.  One of the highlights of Fashion Week for me this season was the unveiling of Mur’s Spring 2013 Runway Show. 

Mur is the latest creation from innovative, fashion forward designer Anastasia Fokina.  Fokina first burst onto the NYC fashion scene in 2009 as the creative force behind T-shirt brand American Apothecary.  Her skill to masterfully blend consciousness, art and style was immediately evident.  And with Mur, Fokina is taking the same originality into the world of accessories – creating iconography through handmade, avant-garde neck pieces.   Maximizing a customer’s ability to express their individuality through accessories, each scarf is an eclectic representation of a personal story.

Last Wednesday, fashion trendsetters flocked to Chelsea to view the capsule collection titled “Fuel”, held inside Chateau Cherbuliez, located at 47 West 20th Street.   And while tasting delicious hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, guests were privileged to witness the future scarves – updated with a 21st century appeal and a true artisan’s flair.  Mur’s ultramodern designs were a perfect contrast to the sexy, lavish French décor of the venue creating a well-balanced event. Chateau Cherbuliez is an opulent indoor and outdoor French-inspired restaurant and wine bar located in the former parish section of the iconic Limelight Marketplace.   Opening in July, Chateau transports those who enter its doors into the lush splendor of Southern France and features one of the largest outdoor garden spaces in New York City.

I was extremely impressed with the capsule collection, and saw several pieces I would love to rock down the concrete runways of Manhattan.  I look forward to seeing more of Mur and the creations of Anastasia Fokina.
