Savion Glover and Leonardo Suarez Paz Join For TANGO, TAP and FIRE at Feinstein's/54 Below

FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Tony Award winning dancer, choreographer and director Savion Glover (Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk, Shuffle Along) and Grammy Award nominated, multi-talented tanguero Leonardo Suarez Paz (Forever Tango, Tango Argentino) bring years of friendship and collaboration to the stage of Feinstein's/54 Below with the best in Tango and Tap from Broadway and beyond. Savion's "young and funk" style and Suarez Paz's "daring and new" sound is a tour de force when combined with Latin Grammy Award nominated Cuartetango string quartet, bandoneon, tango dance and song that is sure to inspire passion and fire.

The two artists first met in the late 90's in New York while performing on Broadway and began to frequent jams in Harlem together. Later, Leonardo became the concert master for Savion's acclaimed show Classical Savion. They began to explore Tango rhythms together with Escualo, a candombe dedicated to Leonardo's father by its revolutionary composer, Astor Piazzolla. It became clear that Glover's "rhythmic innovation" (NY Times) and Suarez Paz's "ingenious musical concept," (The Day, CT) Cuartetango, which continues the legacy of his mentor, Piazzolla, can demonstrate that Tango and Jazz share the same roots and can be combined to form a new, contemporary sound.

Tango and Tap are related at the roots, going back to the time when tango did not have its name yet, when the tango was called candombe, prior to the birth of milonga with the 2x4 rhythm and the 6-8 subdivision. This show is going back to these roots, elevating them with contemporary harmonies and nuances to create a new sound. The result is an exhilarating and uplifting musical experience with "dance, poetry, and visuals - the whole thing is a Force 5 sensorial explosion." (The Day, CT). www.suarezpaztango.com
