Jon Batiste & Stay Human: Blues-Jazz Boogie Band
Jazz-blues pianist Jonathan Batiste and his band Stay Human are all about creating exciting and audience-engaging live performances. In fact, they've been known to just hit the streets and start playing, leading to the release of their 2011 disc MY NY, recorded at a bunch of impromptu subway gigs. Noted for his "outgoing humor and eccentric showmanship" by The New York Times, the charismatic Batiste -- also famed for his moves on the wind-based melodica keyboard -- comes from a long line of talented Louisiana musicians, and he's recorded and appeared with a bevy of stars, including Cassandra Wilson, Prince, Harry Connick Jr., Lenny Kravitz, Wynton Marsalis and more.
