Legendary Performer Review

by Scott Yanow

This attractive LP has 13 of Fats Waller's better recordings, including his solo version of "Ain't Misbehavin'," this touching rendition of "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter," the innovative "Jitterbug Waltz," "The Joint Is Jumpin'" and "Your Feet's Too Big." The enclosed booklet is quite appealing, but all of this music has since been reissued in a more coherent fashion on CD.
