New York - Universally regarded as the best tap dancer on Earth (though only 39 years old, at this writing), 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

- Savion spars tirelessly, treating viewers to a clinic on rhythmic 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 jazzʼs greatest instrumentalists. The DVD is an eyeful. He illuminates the sheer joy of dance while reaffirming his own quest for creative sublimity.

Savion invited four Mt. Rushmore figures to an evening jam; he proves himself one of them.
