Thomas Wright "Fats" Waller (May 21, 1904 – December 15, 1943) was an American jazz pianist, organist, composer, violinist, singer, and comedic entertainer. His innovations in the Harlem stride style laid the groundwork for modern jazz piano. His best-known compositions, "Ain't Misbehavin'" and "Honeysuckle Rose", were inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1984 and 1999.

The groundbreaking solo and group work of the '20s behind him, Waller recorded reams of amusing and swinging combo tunes in the following decade for Bluebird; 23 of them are heard here. The fare ranges from the predictably tongue-in-cheek ("Big Chief De Sota") to classic standards ("Until the Real Thing Comes Along"). And finding room for some of that famous keyboard work, Waller lets loose on the instrumental "Fractious Fingering. Having fun the old fashioned way.
