OMG! The best I've seen. I agree with Paulette I wanted to see something about the music. For example, the rendition of Mister Bojangles was so beautiful but I have no idea who recorded it.

“improv-ography”...Sounds like the general historical approach to/ ethic of black dance and music in which a framework and boundaries are set with space left for individual expression.

I love, love, love Savion Glover. He makes me happy. The show at the Joyce now is one of the very best I have seen with the cool Marshall Davis, Jr. and three wonderful women. Savion is transcendent and the choreography some of the best I've seen. I must say, though, that I found the recorded music to be much, much too loud. I actually had to put some tissue in my ears and that's such a shame because, of course, I go to Savion to HEAR the dancing. I miss Andy McCloud with his bass and other jazz musicians. I also would have appreciated something in the program identifying the music. I'll be back next year anyway.
