From the recording Lotus
Cheek to Cheek was written by Irving Berlin in 1935 for the Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers movie Top Hat. Cheek to Cheek is one of Isabella’s favorite jazz standards and has a lot of fun bending the original melody and making it her own. Isabella took an improvisational solo where she imitated the trumpet style of Chet Baker. She finds the cool sounds of West Coast jazz inspiring and beautiful.
