Description
(2015 Grammy Nominee for Best Jazz Instrumental Album and Jazz Times Critic's Pick Best New Release 2014) Just reading the track list for this celebration of Thomas Wright "Fats" Waller (1904–1943) makes one want to jump for joy. And on this 2015 Grammy nominee for Best Instrumental Jazz Album, what a fine group of musicians is here assembled, to recast the legendary jazz entertainer's music as a modern dance party! From the Afrobeat groove of "Yacht Club Swing" to the simmering slow jam of "Ain't Nobody's Business," Jason Moran and Meshell Ndegeocello adapt Waller's repertoire for a new century. Other highlights include "Jitterbug Waltz," "Two Sleepy People," "Honeysuckle Rose," "Lulu's Back in Town," and "Sheik of Araby/I Found a New Baby."

"A stunning mix of piano jazz with moody, winsome late-night vocals, and it has plenty of get-up-and-go when it's time for it…. His signature songs are well represented, including 'Ain't Misbehavin',' which Ndegeocello sings with a wistfully sultry edge, 'The Joint Is Jumpin',' which is just that, a joyous and yet graceful romp, and an ethereal take on 'Ain't Nobody's Business,' which in Moran and Ndegeocello's hands becomes a dark, moody, and elegantly defiant statement in modal jazz…. A marvelous tribute that still retains its own shape and coherency."—All Music Guide

"He's taken some of Waller's biggest crowd-pleasers and reworked them to reveal just how timeless these songs are."—NPR
