Fats Waller & Louis Armstrong: Keith Nichols' Hot Shots
Thu, June 08, 2017 at 21:15
Piano maestro Keith Nichols returns with his Hot Shots featuring Thomas “Spats” Langham on guitar and vocals to perform the magnificent music of Fats Waller whose many hits include Ain’t Misbehavin’, I’m Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter, Honeysuckle Rose and many more. Trumpeter Enrico Tomasso takes on the role of Louis Armstrong covering his early years of stardom in the ‘20s through to his number 1 hit in the 60s “Wonderful World”. "Trumpeter Enrico Tomasso paid verbal and musical homage in style: a veritable jazz dynamo, he was in tremendous form throughout." Alison Kerr: Edinburgh Jazz Festival. “Keith recreated Fats with two big hands of pulsating stride power. Much of Waller’s music is non-stop partying, full of unstoppable, delightful naughtiness” Gloucester Citizen.
