Like The Standing Room, Lisa Hersch attended the San Francisco Symphony performance of John Adams' Naive and Sentimental Music: It's a dynamic piece; there are places in it where I can imagine
getting up and dancing, if only there were a dance floor handy.
I remember a jazz buddy of mine taking the position that to move one's body when listening was, at best, a show of disrepect to the art being performed. While I don't personally dance to John Coltrane (or John Adams), I welcome others to express themselves...
