Celebrate Brooklyn: Jason Moran’s Fats Waller Dance Party / Butler, Bernstein & The Hot 9

Jun 27, 2015 @ 7:30 pm

Ajason moran

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.

BRIC presents the 37th annual Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival, comprised of 29 performances, June 3 – August 12. The programming, reflective of Brooklyn’s eclecticism and diversity, features a wide array of free, world-class performances in the singular environs of the Prospect Park Bandshell.
