THE FATS WALLER DANCE PARTY - a Smalls Paradise Tribute.
Jason Moran and Meshell Ndegeocello transform Harlem Stage into a dance party as they awaken the spirit of Fats Waller and recreate the dance floor of Harlem’s long-gone jazz shrine, Small’s Paradise. Backed by a seven-piece band, Moran’s musical genius shapes the party through lively compositions and arrangements, while Ndegeocello uses her masterful skills to rework Waller’s applauded tunes. Join us as this dynamic duo take us back to the good ol’ days when Fats use to get the joint jumpin’ with late night jams.
