Jason Moran: Fats Waller Dance Party Paris Jazz Festival 2015

About

Meet one of the rising stars on the world jazz stage, pianist Jason Moran, in the lush and idyllic background of the Parc floral de Paris, at the 2015 edition of the Paris Jazz Festival.

The virtuoso presents his tribute to the works of a legend: Fats Waller. This "Fats Waller Dance Party" blends music, dance, and theater in equal measure—a jaw-dropping, diverse display of impressionism, inspired by artists from Maurice Ravel to Jean-Michel Basquiat.
