"From out of the blue I found myself humming this great standard song, 'Puttin' On The Ritz' by Irving Berlin, and wanted to find a way to record it like it hadn't been heard before.. Working with my nephew Randy (Badazz) Alpert we put it in an unusual dance type setting, that I feel gives it international appeal..I've always felt that if a song is fun to play it will be fun to listen to...and it was fun to play." - Herb Alpert

The Puttin' On The Ritz music video is a creative collaboration between Alpert, artist Glenn Kaino and filmmaker Afshin Shahidi with choreographers Napoleon & Tabitha D'umo from So You Think You Can Dance and produced by Kerith Lemon. One long camera shot follows the lead dancer on a musical journey motivating everyone to join the promenade. The music has an undeniable charm and that coupled with an energetic and intricate dance routine creates a magical pied-piper like scene illustrating the energy and delight of the popular song.

The video features musicians Lani Hall, Bill Cantos, Hussain Jiffry and Michael Shapiro and stars dancer Vincent Noiseux, top 20 of the first season of So You Think You Can Dance Canada, alongside corps dancers like Kherington Payne and others that have been seen on So You Think You Can Dance, America's Best Dance Crew, Dancing with the Stars, This is It, Step Up and more.

Not only is Puttin' On The Ritz the newest featured track on Alpert's album Steppin' Out, release slated for late Summer 2013, but the song and choreography from the music video will be featured in the Zumba Fitness World Party video game which has a launch date of October 2013
