All Rise: A Joyful Elegy for Fats Waller
ALL RISE: A JOYFUL ELEGY FOR FATS WALLER is a collaboration with the vocalist Meshell N'Degeocello that recasts the music of the legendary jazz entertainer Fats Waller as a modern dance party. The album which was produced by N'Degeocello and Blue Note Records president Don Was is the ninth in a formidable catalog that Moran has been building on Blue Note since 1999. ALL RISE features Moran hosting a changeable cast of musicians that includes vocalists N'Degeocello and Lisa E. Harris, his longtime trio the Bandwagon featuring bassist Tarus Mateen and drummer Nasheet Waits, and a funky horn-inflected ensemble anchored by drummer Charles Haynes that features trumpeter Leron Thomas and trombonist Josh Roseman, as well as guest saxophonist Steve Lehman. The album was recorded and mixed by Bob Power, known for honing the sound on classic hip hop records by a Tribe Called Quest, Common and the Roots.
