Madison Mostly Dance Festival | Tap Dancers Take the Lead | Dan Levinson and A.C. Lincoln

By Madison Arts and Culture Alliance (other events)

Tuesday, April 30 2024 7:30 PM 9:00 PM EDT

Jazz groups are using tap dancers again in a throwback to the Thirties and Forties when Tap was King. For this show, we will present a jazz ensemble led by noted clarinetist Dan Levinson in which the tap dancer takes the role of a soloist.

Native New Yorker AC Lincoln was "Born in a Trunk" to Jazz singing duo parents Kim and Marion while on their tour of The U.S. Virgin Islands. Landing back on the scene in NYC, AC would soon be sharing the stage with many of the tap dance greats ("The Hoofers") including Jimmy Slyde, Buster Brown, Chuck Green and Savion Glover . Sharing the family stage with his sister, widely acclaimed singer and songwriter Emily King. As well as writing, producing, arranging and singing his own original music, AC Lincoln has been both a sideman (The Hot Sardines, Mercedes Ellington, WInard Harper and Jeli Posse, Brian Newman, Antoinette Montague) and band leader, singing and tap dancing throughout NYC and abroad.

The 2017 winner of Hot House Magazine’s “NYC Jazz Fans Decision” award for Best Clarinetist, Dan Levinson is equally at home as both leader and sideman, fronting his own groups as well as performing with those led by others. During a 30-year career specializing in traditional jazz and swing music, he has appeared alongside such prominent artists as Mel Tormé, Wynton Marsalis, Dick Hyman, Bria Skonberg, Ed Polcer, Howard Alden, Joe Ascione, Dan Barrett, Jon-Erik Kellso, Randy Reinhart, Mark Shane, Dick Sudhalter, Frank Vignola, Rossano Sportiello, Nicki Parrott, and Randy Sandke.
