Pennies from Heaven,
This review is from: Very Best of Fats Waller (Audio CD)
The Clown Prince of Jazz was also a consummate stride pianist and songwriter of "Ain't Misbehavin'," ""Honeysuckle Rose," and "Your Feet's Too Big's" hilarious wordplay ("Your pedal extremities are colossal / to me you look just like an old fossil"). In "Powerhouse," a fictionalized version of Waller, Eudora Welty writes that he "played with outrageous force . . . then produced something glimmering and fragile, and smiled." Indeed: Pennies from Heaven.
