Will Gaines - obituary

Will Gaines was a 'hoofer' whose shuffling tap-and-tales won over Harlem (NYC) and Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in Soho (London)

Its a shame that no-one in the London clog dance scene ever filmed or interviewed him.

But I believe that he was in the 'Fascinating Rhythm - The Story of Tap' docu. from BBC 4 some year's back.

Chris B.

I saw Will Gaines dance with the free improv guitarist Derek Bailey sometime in the late 1990s. It was fantastic, a real vindication of the art of what both men did. Gaines was pretty old even then, but still had it.
