We struck gold twice in a matter of weeks -- my daughters, Lea and Sara, and I -- intoxicating artistry in dance at a pair of performances spanning the old and new year.
Okay. There's Fred & Ginger. Sonny & Cher. Beyonce & Jay-Z. And then there's Bennett & Gaga. A match made in jazz heaven. Let's face it. We're dragging and sagging under heavy headlines. We all need a quick escape from global gloom, and I don't mean Soul Cycle.
