AllMusic Review by

The jazz singing and piano star may mug and joke his way through much of this popular 1930s and '40s material, but that shouldn't obscure his mastery both of the jazz stride piano and of the slyly insinuating vocal. On songs like the title track, "Honeysuckle Rose," and even the sentimental "Please Keep Me in Your Dreams," Fats Waller cements his status as one of the true legends of 20th century jazz.
