Thanks to 2Blowhards I learned that this year is the centennial of the birth of the great Fats Waller (1904-1943).
As Michael says:
If tracks like "Honeysuckle Rose" and "The Joint is Jumpin'" don't raise your spirits, well, then you might as well give up now because you're already dead.
My own favourite? - too many to choose really but "My very good friend the milkman" or "Your feet's too big" must be up there somewhere with Michael's choices. This CD is a good introduction.
