Fats Waller (1904-1943) was an American jazz pianist, organist, composer and comedic entertainer. Widely recognized as a master of stride piano — Waller was one of the most popular performers of his era and was also a prolific songwriter. A good number of songs that you’ve been hearing Corner Pocket play each week at Cat’s Corner were originally written or co-written and performed by Fats Waller, including “Honeysuckle Rose”, “Ain’t Misbehavin'”,”‘Tain’t What You Do”, and “Yatch Club Swing.” As usual, the Proper Records label has good compilation that’s worth listening to:
