Fats Waller - Your Feet's Too Big

Fats Waller was one of the great jazz piano players, and has held a special place in my heart for many years.

With a face like that though, can you blame me?  This guys amazing.

My dad used to play this guy and a few other people all the time when I was really young, and they've all held a special place in my heart ever since.

This song in particular used to play a lot because it was stuck in the tape deck of my dad's truck for years.  This and some other artists I believe.  Not sure what it all was, but it was a really good tape.

Hope you all like it as much as I do.

  1. Gotta love this guy. You're right. And his hands were so huge that people had trouble playing his stuff on piano because they just couldn't get the same octave spread he could reach. No matter; he played it better anyway.
