Customers Who Bought The Genius of Thomas "Fats" Waller Also Bought:
Of the thirty-two titles in this compilation not counting alternate takes he composed or collaborated on no fewer than eighteen. His piano solo recordings seem to have been somewhat spasmodic; the earliest was recorded in early and shows him still under the influence of James P. The following year he recorded two duets with Benny Payne, who was a stand-in for Jelly Roll Morton, who failed to show.
Later that year he recorded another four titles, including the coded "Viper's Drag" viper being argot for a reefer addict. There was then a hiatus, so far as piano solos were concerned, until mid, when he recorded five, four of which are standards. Another four years elapsed before he recorded his last five piano solos for Victor, including "Carolina Shout" by his mentor.
This is a wonderful collection, beautifully remastered, which repays close and repeated listening. If Johnson and Willie the Lion are unquestionably deeper, more searching artists, Waller is the most consistent.
The Genius of Thomas "Fats" Waller: Piano Book: Thomas "Fats" Waller
Highpoints for me are mostly on the second disc - aficionados, go there first! Alligator Crawl is a manneristic masterpiece, possessing besides "the secret of joy" l'air de rien Those hints of Boogie - Woogie certainly bring to mind Waller's cited distain for that idiom Anyway, all of the solos are definitive. For all the great music Waller recorded, it's criminal that there are only 3 solo sessions between and his death in !
Carolina Shout the originally issued, better take is more technically assured than any of the composer James P. Just one thing, though - a cavil: Davies or Lionel Risler or Steven Lasker remastering job need to check them out! Audio CD Verified Purchase. One person found this helpful.
