The Michèle Drees JAZZ TAP PROJECT
Rhythm tap and jazz go together like bread and butter! So many of the great jazz drummers were heavily influenced by the Rhythm tap dancers of the day; in the 20's-50's most shows and gigs would have at least one tap dancer.
The Jazz Tap Project is an exciting mix of improvised tap and jazz featuring one of England’ finest Rhythm tappers Junior Laniyan, founder of the monthly London Tap Jam. With Latin Supremo John Crawford (piano), Steve Rose (double bass) and Michèle Drees (drums).
