Summary
Part of the documentation of the week-long tap dancing workshop By word of foot I, presented by the Changing Times Tap Dancing Company on October 13-18, 1980. Beginning of the second "Cocktail hour with John Bubbles," a series of four conversations between Bubbles and Jane Goldberg. Throughout this session Bubbles discusses and sings songs he has written. He discusses combining dancing with talking or writing; tells anecdotes about Fred Astaire, Marilyn Miller, and Dick Powell; and recalls how he created the role of Sportin' Life in George Gershwin's opera Porgy and Bess. Other topics are racial prejudice, and learning tap steps from others. This session continues on *MGZIC 9-5729 and *MGZIC 9-5727.
