Dance Performances - Opus McShann

About Opus McShann


A choreographic portrait of Jay McShann, a great practitioner of  Kansas City jazz. Opus McShann conveys the various styles this jazz master exudes through his music. From the sexy, beguiling duet in Gee Baby Ain’t I Good to You to the comical meandering Doo Wah Doo, Opus McShann presents the jazz doctor as a modern day African-American icon with whom everyone can relate.
