“Nemr, a tapper extraordinaire, has taken on the massive task of reviving the superlative steps and styles of the late masters Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Jimmy Slyde, Buster Brown, Bubba Gaines and Chuck Green…Nemr stirs the soul with his devotion to this quest and his ability to achieve it with stunning accuracy." —Schenectady Daily Gazette
