Fats Waller 1

Posted by Legacy Recordings On February - 5 - 2009

Thursdays are Fats Waller day here at the Legacy Podcasts, in honor of Black History Month.

Fats Waller is one of America’s great composers and performers of the 20th century. His songs, stride piano style and on-stage and on-screen antics were legendary and made him one of the first African-American superstars.

Count Basie sat at his feet to learn, Art Tatum considered Fats the best, and Waller’s stride style influenced Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Dave Brubeck and many others.
