Universally cinsidered as the best tap dancer on the planet 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 gives a master class in lyrical bliss while treating viewers to a clinic on 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. There have been other tap ifused releases involving piano, specfically Gerri Allen and while that particular release was good, it falls well short of the the technical prowess that Glover brings to the table wth this particular release Fours.


Savion Glover is the epitome of pure entertainment. From the amazing athleticism to the rhythmic artistry, one would be heard pressed to find a more entertaining if not gifted performers.
