"Toe taps give way to foot stomps. Finger snaps burst into claps. Shoulders spontaneously shimmy.  Hips begin to wiggle in provocative ways.  You can't help it.  The jump, swing, soul, grit, sex, heartbreak, jubilation....everything the music promised and more.  When the sax moans out 'Harlem Nocturne,' you expect to open the door to find it raining in black and white." ...Claudia Russell, The Jazz Ride Home, www.jazz88.org
