Jason Moran’s Fats Waller Dance Party UPDATED
Jason Moran pays tribute to Fats Waller, the influential stride pianist, composer and singer best known for his songs Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Honeysuckle Rose.
Rather than interpreting Waller’s ebulliently swinging songbook directly, Moran breaks down melodies and riffs and then “the band built on those fragments, in rhythms coming out of 1960s-and-beyond dance music: Motown, house, hip-hop,” the New York Times reported.
