Fats Waller Piano Solos (1929-1941). One of the most important of jazz pianists, Fats Waller blended the stride style of his early influence James P. Johnson with his own refined sense of melody and dynamics. Beneath all the comical vocalizing on his many combo sides, one often could overlook Waller's incredible facility at the keys. As adept as stride masters like Willie "The Lion" Smith but not quite as impressive as Art Tatum, Waller could have even done without such a masterful touch at the piano, considering his rich store of songs and Broadway shows like Hot Chocolates

If Fats Waller had lived to ripe old age, he might have been the consensus greatest jazz pianist instead of Tatum. He had all the technique, as evident on these recordings. His gentle nudging of melodies, especially his own, has a charm that on repeated listenings goes deep. On first hearing, you'll find them lovely, and on subsequent hearings you become simply enchanted. Waller had a reputation as a court jester, but when he sat down at the piano alone, he was intensely serious. This is a great composer composing variations on wonderful compositions.
