Savion Glover - an Amazing Artist

We saw Savion Glover give a most amazing Tap Dance performance in San Francisco this evening! He performed with a wonderful backup of piano, (upright) bass, drums and tenor/soprano/flute who were all talented individual and ensemble musicians playing jazz that was influenced by Pharoah Sanders, John Coltrane and many other wonderful musicians of the past 50 years.

Savion Glover is amazingly talented in several different ways! He is simply an amazing tap dancer. More impressive though is how he can blend rhythm into the melody of his band and take in both their melody and rhythm into a melodic and fluid form. He also has a sense of humor and can be both brash and restrained/humble in his performance.

Words can not describe what I experienced!
