The Centennial Collection (2004) (RMST) (BLUEBIRD RECORDS) (21 TRACKS)
Fats Waller

Album Description:

THE CENTENNIAL COLLECTION is 2004 compilation of 21 songs by legendary American jazz pianist, organist, composer, singer, and comedic entertainer Thomas "Fats" Waller.  

A true giant of early recorded music, Thomas "Fats" Waller dominated the worlds of jazz and popular music in the 1930''s and 1940''s, scoring numerous hits, appearing in many films, and penning Broadway musicals. THE CENTENNIAL COLLECTION celebrates Waller''s 100th birthday with a unique album. The 21 song set showcase Waller''s greatest recordings - from his extraordinary piano solos and playing the blues to his exceptional songwriting and edgy vocal satire - all digitally remastered in 24-bit sound. 

As a talented songwriter, brilliant satiric vocalist, and stride pianist of exceptional ability, Waller cannot be overestimated as an entertainer. In the tradition of Louis Armstrong and Nat "King" Cole, Thomas "Fats" Waller was a supremely skilled jazz musician who channeled his energy into a crowd-pleasing persona that, in Waller''s case, was particularly marked by exuberance and an irrepressible sense of fun. The performances on THE CENTENNIAL COLLECTION stand as a testament to Waller''s legacy. Chestnuts such as "''Taint Nobody''s Bizness If I Do" and "I''m Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter" (Waller''s versions, in some cases, helped introduce these tunes to much wider audiences) are given fine workouts. Waller''s self-penned songs, "The Joint Is Jumpin''," and "Up Jumped You With Love" - and a truncated version of "Ain''t Misbehavin''" - fit cozily next to these classics. Also known for introducing the organ to jazz, Waller turns in a spooky and majestic version of W.C. Handy''s "Beale Street Blues," recorded in a converted church with Alberta Hunter on vocals. THE CENTENNIAL COLLECTION is a fine album for newcomers and old fans alike.

Recorded between 1927 & 1942.
