New
York – Universally regarded as the best tap dancer on Earth (though
only 40 years old, at this writing), Tony Award-winner SAVION GLOVER
showcases his musical side by jamming with jazz royalty. Over the course
of an hour-long DVD featuring interview footage and 4 separate jams –
one each with McCOY TYNER, EDDIE PALMIERI, ROY HAYNES AND JACK
DEJOHNETTE – Savion spars tirelessly, treating viewers to a clinic on
rhythmic improvisation. It is a remarkably athletic performance in which
he shifts from soloist to accompanist and back, challenging and
reacting to his mentors with a searching, spiritual demeanor emblematic
of jazz╩╝s greatest instrumentalists. The DVD is an eyeful. He
illuminates the sheer joy of dance while reaffirming his own quest for
creative sublimity.

Savion invited four Mt. Rushmore figures to an evening jam; he proves himself one of them.
