I had the pleasure of interviewing tap-dancing legend Maurice Hines for the radio last week.

Together with his brother Gregory Hines, he re-invented tap dance for modern audiences.

Maurice guested on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson over 35 times and had a featured role in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Cotton Club. He has worked with everyone--Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne, Pearl Bailey, Ella Fitzgerald, and on and on.

The 72-year old singer/dancer is not a magician, but he is a wonderful performer. If you'd like to hear him speak about his life and times, and talk about his consummate performing, you can hear the entire 15-minute interview here:
