JASON MORAN’S FATS WALLER DANCE PARTY | BUTLER, BERNSTEIN & THE HOT 9


The astonishingly inventive pianist and composer Jason Moran unleashes his fun side in this “joyous and foolish and graceful” (The New York Times) event, a spectacle complete with dancers and costumes that takes the stride innovator Fats Waller as a jumping off point to dig into grooves that flirt with everything from Motown to house to hip-hop. For all Moran’s skill and showmanship, Butler, Bernstein & The Hot 9—a dazzling collision between the great New Orleans pianist, singer, and recent Brooklyn trans­plant Henry Butler, “a visionistical down- home cat and a helli­fied piano plunker to boot” (Dr. John), and the retro-futurist trumpeter Steven Bernstein—will be a tough act to follow.

THE SON OF THE SHEIK WITH LIVE SCORE BY ALLOY ORCHESTRA | GHOST TRAIN ORCHESTRA


Alloy Orchestra’s latest score enlivens Rudolf Valentino’s final outing, The Son of the Sheik (1926), a vivid tale of passion, betrayal, and redemption that leaves no doubt that Valentino (who died suddenly on the eve of its release) is the silver screen’s greatest lover, and that Alloy is still “the best in the world at accompanying silent films” (Roger Ebert). Ghost Train Orchestra dig deep into Harlem and Chicago jazz of the 1920s.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
