Note: From "Step It Down": "Sandy Ree was one of the Sea Islanders' favorite dances; they seemed to reserve their fanciest footwork and their hottest clapping for a Sandy Ree session. The word itself may originally have been 'sangari', an African term, but the Islanders say that the name comes from the way your feet 'scrooch up the sand' when the Sandy Ree step is done."
About the session: The tenth of 21 recording sessions with Bessie Jones.
