Ain't Misbehavin' - The Story of Fats Waller


248 pgs.
Da Capo Press, Publ.

This informal narrative of Waller's life and music--a moving memoir of a musical genius and an outstanding human being--was written by Fats' personal manager, Wallace T. "Ed" Kirkeby. He reveals a life that was filled with paradoxes and details Waller's collaboration with lyricist Andy Razaf; his friendships with James P. Johnson, Willie "The Lion" Smith, and Duke Ellington; and his successful forays into films and Broadway musicals. He also contributes his own personal memoir and a selected discography listing the most representative Waller recordings.
