AllMusic Review by

Recorded live in 1938 at New York's Yacht Club on 52nd Street, these performances reveal the legendary jazz pianist Fats Waller, accompanied by his regular small group, at his most relaxed, humorous, and inventive, on an entertaining selection that features the hipster standard "Flat Foot Floogie," an accomplished instrumental in "St. Louis Blues," and four previously unreleased vocal and instrumental recordings, including "Somebody Else's Too" and "I Had to Do It."
