Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks are a New York based “jazz repertory and society dance band.”  They won a  Grammy for the soundtrack of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire.”

In their 1996  album Cheek to Cheek they have produced a collection of hits from the 1930’s that were made famous in the movies starring Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.  Here’s one of them:

“A Fine Romance” was written by Dorothy Fields (lyrics) and Jerome Kern. This song was only one of two for which she wrote the lyrics before the music was composed.  The song is from the 1936  movie Swing Time and is performed here by the Nighthawks.

We often post the Nighthawks music on Blogfinger.net;  people love the nostalgia of that era.
