  • Collecting a selection of vocal and instrumental pieces from the inimitable 20th-century jazz pianist Fats Waller, this best-of includes a raucous version of "The Joint Is Jumpin'," as well as the breakneck instrumental "Handful of Keys," the pretty love song "Two Sleepy People," and the hilarious "Your Feet's Too Big." Waller's signature irrepressible humorous vocal delivery is much in evidence throughout, while his fluid musical technique and command of the organ and piano never cease to amaze.
