Under the shrewd direction of Des McAnuff, with sensational choreography by Sergio Trujillo, AIN’T TOO PROUD celebrates the collective miracle of a blissfully silken sound forged out of clashing egos. It refreshingly emphasizes the improbable triumph of rough, combustible parts assembled into glistening smoothness.”
