Born and raised in Durham, North Carolina, pianist Chris Pattishall, who studied with Marcus Roberts, was a professional jazz pianist as a teenager.

While he has worked with Jimmy Heath, Jon Hendricks, and Wycliffe Gordon. Pattishall has long been attracted to prebop jazz piano, finding his own voice within the genre while feeling free to stretch its boundaries.

His solo piano LiveStream of May 21, 2020 features Pattishall playing songs written by or associated with Fats Waller including “Alligator Crawl,” Jitterbug Waltz,” “Truckin’,” and “Ain’t Misbehavin’”; some of the versions are fantasies based on the original tunes.

The multi-part interpretation of “Truckin’” really displays Chris Pattishall’s creativity without losing the essence of either the song or Fats Waller’s stride style.
