Any attempt to sum up the life and outsized presence of Antoine "Fats" Domino, Jr. in New Orleans is folly. Simply stated, neither would have been the same without the other. Both are eternal joys. The life Fats lived here - red beans simmering, music radiating from humble architecture more human than the towers that define other cities - is palpable in Terrance Osborne’s robust portrait of The Fat Man (title of the first rock and roll record to sell 1 million copies, cowritten with producer Dave Bartholomew) in the kingdom he ruled with grace and notes.

New York Times: 'The Big Beat’ Celebrates Fats Domino, Rock’s Reclusive Giant
Elvis Presley often referred to Fats Domino as “the real king of rock ’n’ roll,” but this octogenarian musical royal has led a relatively sedate life, especially compared with high-flying contemporaries like Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard. Perhaps that’s why this New Orleans piano legend’s impact is often overlooked.
