PRESS RELEASE:
Anamateur, together with his beloved accomplices Priamos Morakis and Periklis Trivolis, continues presenting his tribute to one of his most beloved musical heroes, Thomas "Fats" Waller, the legendary jazz entertainer. The repertoire will not include songs that Fats made famous through his inimitable performance (either as a befooling crooner or as a stride piano innovator and virtuoso). It will focus on the songs for which he wrote the music (Andy Razaf often writing the lyrics) and which do not include only the widely known "Ain't misbehavin'" and "Honeysuckle Rose", but many other unexplored treasures, with an often sarcastic view on social issues ("The spider and the fly", "Black and Blue"). This is a gig which is not only suitable for the fans of Waller and of the '30s swing, but also for the fans of Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins, these pioneers of modern jazz who never hid their admiration for Fats.
Address: 15 Herodotou str., 10674, Athens; tel: (+30) 215 5510090. Free entrance.
