Leon never found the words to tell me about his illness. Instead he wrote an album of 3 songs. One he danced as a solo in our final concert in 1995. This previously never released album of songs and music was hand delivered To: Me, For: Me, From: post-mortem Leon Evans, in which I can now honor by presenting through Tap dance, how I understand his lyrics reflect his thoughts about the first day we met until his dying day. I am Jaye Allison. Together we were LEJA DANCE THEATRE for 17 years. I even got to name these originals. ‘Hum this Melody’ was recorded appropriately in Stanton Hall Dance Studios where our company rehearsed because there was a piano in each studio, along with Ballet Barres. My sweatshirt hangs on the barre in the background of Leon at the piano. I always wondered what happened to it?
