This DVD contains over one hour of Fats Domino performing all his hits and more at the 2001 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Also included are extended interviews, special intros, archive material and other bonus elements.
The hits come fast and furious in this 2001 performance by Antoine “Fats” Domino at the Jazz and Heritage Festival in his hometown of New Orleans. Well, maybe not that fast; Fats’s style was never what you’d call exactly frenetic, and he was well into his seventies at the time of this show. But there are a whole lot of hits–“I’m Walkin’,” “Blueberry Hill,” “Walking to New Orleans,” “My Blue Heaven,” etc.–and they’re just as irresistible as ever, with Domino and band (including a full horn section) in top form as they deliver their brew of R&B, rock & roll, and country music with its distinctively rollicking New Orleans vibe. Aside from the 60-minute concert, the DVD features interviews with Fats, Allen Toussaint (himself a legendary New Orleans musician and producer), author/music journalist Mikal Gilmore, and others, plus a minute or two of Domino and Toussaint jamming at the piano.
