Favorites: Fats Waller

Presently tinkling the ivories in my studio, my car and my headphones is the incredible Fats Waller who in 39 short years managed to compose some of the most iconic music in the great American songbook including Honeysuckle Rose, Ain't  Misbehavin' and After You've Gone.   This is music that will make your ears blush with foot-stomping joy....a perfect soundtrack for a Monday in January.
