An Evening with Savion Glover & Jack DeJohnette

In this swirling duet, drummer Jack DeJohnette and tap dancer Savion Glover cross disciplines in the pursuit of rhythm. Glover, known for his Tony-winning choreography for the ’96 musical Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk, has more rhythmic talent in one foot than most drummers can muster from an entire kit. The 42-year-old Newark native is so creatively gifted that he can be recorded in audio alone, foregoing the typical tapper medium of video; in 2009, Glover teamed with DeJohnette and a combo of jazz legends to track a live album at the Blue Note. Meanwhile, Jack DeJohnette’s avant-garde and funk attack has put him in the one-name club among jazz nerds — to describe the 73-year-old’s career is to outline a highlight reel of jazz since 1969. Alone, the artists’ solos grab you by the collar and let go only when they’ve had their say. Together, one can only imagine the athletic showcase from these masters of their forms.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
