Fats Waller and a Hand Full of Keys!

Born on May 21, 1904, Thomas "Fats" Waller would be 106 years old!

Today is the last of my current stint of the "real" world chewing up my 12 short hours I shall be free and back to my life of semi-leisure! If only the day could move along like the rhythm of Fats' piano roll!

I'll talk more about the great Mr. Waller in the future...for now it's enough to lay back and pick up what he was puttin' down! Enjoy!

Thanks Fats! As much for today as 70 years ago when you were doing it! Thanks for making happy music...we need more of it!

What I love about those Waller "soundies" is watching how he rarely has to look at the keyboard while he's playing. A true genius in every sense of the word.

A natural genius indeed. "Well All Right, Then"
