Pianist Jason Moran made it his mission on his latest album to bring a Harlem jazz legend "back into the conversation" in the 21st century.
Moran says he was "shocked and so elated" when his ninth Blue Note album, "All Rise: A Joyful Elegy for Fats Waller," was nominated for best jazz instrumental album, putting him in the same company with pianists Chick Corea and Fred Hersch, among others.
The album sprung from a 2011 commission from the performing arts venue Harlem Stage Gatehouse to do a concert honoring Waller.
The 39-year-old Moran — a 2010 MacArthur "genius" fellow who recently composed the score to the film "Selma" — felt something was missing from the modern jazz scene where audiences listen intently without leaving their seats.
On "Ain't Misbehavin'" Ndegeocello's whispery, sultry vocals float over a funky groove from Moran's Fender Rhodes, while "Ain't Nobody's Business" is turned into a slow jam.
