AllMusic Review by Heather Phares

Fats Waller mixed good-natured, theatrical humor and flawless technique in his work, and this CD gathers digitally remastered versions of 24 of his all-time top performances. The Very Best of Fats Waller features songs from each stage of his career -- including favorites like "Your Feet's Too Big," "Ain't Misbehavin'," "Two Sleepy People," "The Joint Is Jumping," and "Jitterbug Waltz" -- making this collection one of the best Waller overviews available.
