Drummer Jack DeJohnette calls Savion Glover “the Coltrane of tap.” Glover, who has been dancing since he was seven, was recently nominated for a Tony Award for his choreography for Shuffle Along, or the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All that Followed. He treats the floor like any amplified instrument. “I’m going for the cleanest, stripped-down vibration and sound.” Watching DeJohnette and Glover together, you’ll see a full array of percussive practices common to jazz drummers: polyrhythms, press rolls, call-and-response, shuffles, and lines in double time. The two bring their improvisational heat to the Lensic on Sunday, May 22. On the cover is a photo of Glover in motion, courtesy Performance Santa Fe.
