Music/ Jazz biography. Now in paperback the long unavailable biography of a jazz giant. Fats Waller is a reprint of a Schirmer Book originally published in 1977. Written by his son and a professional writer, it is the definitive biography of the famous stride pianist, well-known for his humorous performance style and for composing such jazz classics as Ain't Misbehavin. Waller's recordings continue to find a steady audience, having been reissued on LP and now on CD, and his music inspired a Broadway review (Aint Misbehavin) as well as being featured in several films. This full story of his life and career has never been surpassed by any other biography, and is generally recognized as the best work on Waller ever written. Maurice Waller is Fats Wallers son.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
