One of several Classics discs chronicling Waller's vast amount of Bluebird combo sides from the '30s and '40s, this roundup of some of the pianist's 1935 offerings includes many fine cuts but doesn't quite rank with the maestro's best work. Featuring Waller's longstanding Fats Waller & His Rhythm band, the 22 numbers may not include any original material, but there is still more than enough in the way of indelible performances. This is especially true for a wonderful "Lulu's Back in Town," the Coots and Gillespie rarity "Whose Honey Are You?," and "Rosetta."

Fats Waller seems never to have suffered from seasickness. Every photograph and eyewitness account of his transatlantic nautical adventures indicates a strong constitution, unfazed by rough seas even if the rest of the passengers were hanging over the rails. When Waller invaded London in August 1938, a team of Anglo and European musicians were assigned the task of accompanying him through the grooves of six phonograph recordings. Known for the rest of time as "Fats Waller & His Continental Rhythm," this band hammered out one amazing performance after the next. "Don't Try Your Jive on Me" and "Ain't Misbehavin'" both feature the organ, cool at first but gradually gathering steam and finishing grandly with horns in the air. "Music, Maestro Please" is late-'30s sentimentality at its finest, with tinkling celeste and even a bit of romantic violin…

The figure of Thomas "Fats" Waller survived as his work : the image of the man with his bowler hat, his jovial air and his big cigars went around the world, not to mention that he was a fantastic pianist of the first hour of jazz. The Harlem native (1904), gifted with the keyboard, was a prolific composer whose repertoire includes about 700 themes including the classics "Honeysuckle Rose" and "aint'misbehavin' ". Solo or as a leader of Fats Waller & His Rhythm, The Pianist accumulated successes for OKeh, Bluebird or Victor, toured Europe and recorded a London Suite on site (1939), created the musical Early to Bed (1941) at Carnegie Hall in New York and starred in the film Stormy Weather in 1943. The obese jazzman, bulimic of life, died on December 15, 1943, during a journey that took him home. His work has greatly marked the history of jazz.

A masterful stride pianist, a playful vocalist, and an influential jazz figure who was enormously popular in the '30s and '40s.
Not only was Fats Waller one of the greatest pianists jazz has ever known, he was also one of its most exuberantly funny entertainers - and as so often happens, one facet tends to obscure the other. His extraordinarily light and flexible touch belied his ample physical girth; he could swing as hard as any pianist alive or dead in his classic James P. Johnson-derived stride manner, with a powerful left hand delivering the octaves and tenths in a tireless, rapid, seamless stream…
