Jason Moran's Fats Waller Dance Party
Nearly 90 years ago, jazz music was party music. Jazz got people moving, whether played uptown or downtown in Depression-era juke joints across the country. The legendary Fats Waller—and his ability to get everyone on the dance floor—helped make the movement happen. Jason Moran keeps Waller’s life-of-the-party spirit alive in this multimedia/dance party event, reimagining the Harlem pianist’s hits as Afrobeat, funk, house music, and more modern grooves.
