*(Los Angeles, CA) Get ready for an unforgettable Evening of Rhythm and Percussion! Award-winning tap dancing sensation Savion Glover and renowned jazz drummer Jack DeJohnette will blur the line between music and dance as they merge their brilliant talents into a surging rhythmic machine at Valley Performing Arts Center for one night only on Thursday on May 26 at 8:00pm. This not-to-be-missed performance promises to be a tour-de-force night of percussion and rhythm bursting with the full vibrational power exchanged between these two legends.
Joining Savion Glover and Jack DeJohnette onstage at VPAC is Marshall Davis, an impressive tap dancer in his own right who was a cast member of Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk and a Star Search champion.
Most recently, Savion Glover choreographed the Broadway musical, Shuffle Along, starring Audra McDonald and directed by George C. Wolfe, which opens April 28 at the Music Box Theatre.
George C. Wolfe said of Savion Glover, “I think what makes him an incredible artist is his extraordinary joy in what he does. He is able to live in that state of joy and not compromise his emotional complexity like the earlier tap dancers had to…He is as much a composer as he is a choreographer.”
Telegraph UK said of DeJohnette, “Jack DeJohnette’s drums rarely settle on a pulse, painting a sound-world in intricate floating patterns full of empty spaces, like points of light in a night sky.”
