Fats Waller was a born entertainer, and it helped that he was one of the most exciting and powerful jazz piano players to ever set foot on the planet, swinging in the classic James P. Johnson-influenced stride fashion that Waller defined and made his own. This set has many of Waller's key tracks, including "Honeysuckle Rose," "Ain't Misbehavin'," and "Jitterbug Waltz."
