album: The Joint Is Jumpin’

Fats Waller. The Joint Is Jumpin’. RCA 6288-2-RB, 1987. (on CD)

I’m not too familiar with Waller’s discography, so I can’t really judge the content of this CD (I mean, it’s great music, but that’s a given). It sounds good though, and has excellent liner notes by George Winston – probably the only time I’ve ever seen good liner notes on this sort of collection – which leads me to believe a lot of thought went into the song selection.

8/10 (Great).
