Alvin Ailey

Newark Mayor Corey Booker wished Judith Jamison a Happy Birthday at NJPAC this past Sunday and the crowd sang a round of the traditional birth anniversary tune. The company opened with a Sweet Honey in the Rock piece that lacked coherence, but followed with a fantastic piece set to Otis Redding's music and parts of Revelations, which is now almost 50 years old, but is as strong a piece as I've ever seen.
