Incredible Dance/Music Video

nicholas2.jpgThis is incredible… on YouTube.com, from the movie Stormy Weather. Jumpin Jive with Cab Calloway (music) and The Nicholas Brothers (dance). nicholas1.jpgIt’s musical, artful, athletic. I find it hard to believe my own eyes.

We listened (also on Youtube) to an interview with one of the brothers from just a few years ago. He said they did it (at least that final staircase sequence) in just one take. Amazing.

    That was simply awesome. Cab Calloway is right up near the top of my personal pantheon and now I get to add the Nicholas Bros. to the mix. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I stumbled upon your website while searching for info on bargello quilts – and saw your clip on the Nicholas Brothers. They are truly unmatched, still, to this date. Thank goodness for today’s tap artists, like Savion Glover (did you see “Happy Feet”? that’s his style – very grounded, rhythmic, syncopated, and incredibly internalized – pure joy to watch & listen to).

    Take a peak sometime at works by Savion, as well as old greats like Bill Bojangles (he taught Shirley Temple every step she knew), and Fred Astaire & Gene Kelly. You can’t beat’em.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    There’s a clip of Savion Glover near the end of this clip. Enjoy!
