Cut just few years prior to Waller's untimely death, these Bluebird sides find the irrepressible pianist and singer on yet another of the many combo dates which featured his rhythm band. Full of his usual wit and vigor, Waller dominates the program with a mix of his usual zingers ("All That Meat and No Potatoes") and some well-worn standards ("Everybody Loves My Baby"). With Waller in fine form on both the vocal and piano end of things, top-notch contributions by rhythm soloists Gene Sedric, Al Casey, and John "Bugs" Hamilton add some unexpected delights. Even with a generous 23 tracks to get through, the going is never less than enjoyable.
