Tom Wiggins won't be the only one at the the Fats Waller Tribute. I
bought my ticket some time ago. Wouldn't miss it. In 1993, also at the
SF Jazz Festival, I was at a similar Fats tribute in the same hall. It
was fantastic, and included many of the same players plus the late Doc
Cheatham. I recall they often featured dual pianos, and for a few tunes
Dick Hyman fired up the grand organ of the Davies Hall. I think Jay
McShann was part of it as well. He must be really up in years by now.
Bet he's around 90 or close to it.
When I bought my ticket they told me at 6 PM there will be a pre-concert
talk given (presumably about Fats Waller).
