Jazz Night – The Music of Fats Waller 

Fats Waller was a jazz triple-threat: an excellent songwriter, a charismatic vocalist, and an outstanding stride pianist.  jazz 2.0 and the ISU Jazz Combos pay tribute to the great music of this jazz icon, playing versions of his tunes made popular by Doc Severinsen, Louis Armstrong, Jason Moran, and others.

Jazz Night – The Music of Pat Metheny
