the best performances ever
21 December 2005 | by shanamtlewis77See all my reviews

This program was responsible for the onset of my appreciation for tap, jazz and the art of musical performances in general. PLEASE SOMEONE, let me know when this is available to purchase so i may share it with friends who did not see this wonderful program 20 years ago like i did!!! My absolute favorite was the performance Sarah Vaughn did (solo) then when she performed the duet with Billy Eckstein. You just have to see it once to love this historical music collage.But if you are like me, you can't see it just once. It stays in your head and you find yourself humming the songs over and over. So, i give this two thumbs up, SIX stars and every other accolade that exists.
