If you’ve ever been interested in Jazz, you’ve probably not missed the ebullient musical personality of Fats Waller, how could you? Lesser known, but just as interesting, is his friend and protege Una Mae Carlisle, a great pianist and composer who deserves our attention.
This round of Piano Starts Here will feature: Casey MacGill, Ray Skjelbred, Kate Molloy, Evan Captain
The Piano Starts Here series highlights the work of some of the most prolific and talented composers and pianists to have ever tackled the instrument. Each of the performances brings together Seattle’s finest pianists to perform the works of the artist selected for that evening on the Royal Room’s Steinway B grand piano.
Past PSH performances have highlighted the work of Sonny Clark, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Sun Ra, Annette Peacock, Bill Evans, Mary-Lou Williams, Fats Waller, Herbie Hancock, Alice Coltrane, Herbie Nichols, and countless others.
