Fat sounds

I’m going to try and post weekly what I’m listening to…this week it’s a very old classic – The Fats Waller Collection. Fats was an extremely influential pianist who shaped the sound of early jazz and helped make modern music what it is today. Sadly, he died on Pneumonia in 1943, aged just 39. His music is an incredibly soulful mix of jazz piano and blues standards that makes for an excellent 12″ to accompany beavering away on pet projects.
