Jazz Club: Jason Moran’s Fats Waller Dance Party
PRESENTED IN COLLABORATION WITH FONTANA CHAMBER ARTS

“Pulling from any number of angles, Moran left one constant in place: a soulful, danceable core.”
— The Washington Post

MacArthur Fellow and DownBeat’s 2011 “Jazz Artist of the Year,” Jason Moran transforms the great Fats Waller’s rollicking stride piano style into his own. He creates a contemporary statement of Waller’s tunes with rhythms from Motown to hip-hop. Infused with enough energy to make you want to get up and dance, we’ll have the dance floor ready!

Sunday, April 27  |  4:00 & 7:00 PM
Williams Theatre, Kalamazoo  |  $30 reserved table, $20 general admission balcony

Jazz Club: Jacky Terrasson Trio

“This was extreme-dynamics brinkmanship, figuring out how music can intensify while growing ever quieter—this was music that rewards an audience.”
The New York Times

Winner of the Thelonious Monk Award in 1993, Jacky Terrasson has matured into one of the most admirable jazz pianists of our time. Making his overdue Festival debut, Terrasson will tear things up at the Jazz Club with his trio, showing why The New York Times named him one of the “30 under 30” as a musician most likely to change American culture in the next 30 years.

Thursday, May 1  |  6:30 & 9:00 PM

Jazz Club: Barry Harris Trio

“Harris isn’t simply a keeper of the flame of bebop; he’s one of the great exponents of classic jazz.”
All About Jazz

The eminent Barry Harris is truly one of the most honored and admired figures in jazz, the man from Detroit who represents the legacy of bebop in today’s music. Harris embodies both of jazz music’s most important qualities—tradition and innovation. Hear his trio in their first Festival appearance.
