Mr. Bojangles, Dance

Thanks so much for this wonderful piece. It filled in lots of information for me, and both the clips are superb. I don't think I'd ever seen the entire stair routine with Robinson and Shirley Temple before. His lightness on the stairs, even with her dragging him back at the end, showed what tap can be. The Bromberg version of Walker's song is pitch perfect. Wonderful!
