Fats Waller’s Classical Background – 19 September Phantom Dancer Radio Show Play List


If the 19 September Phantom Dancer radio show is anything to go by, the 26 September non-stop mix of swing and dance from live 1920s – 1960s radio and TV is going to be the best show ever.

This week you’ll hear Fats Waller, Benny Goodman and news on the European Crisis over WABC NY in 1938 which we didn’t get to hear on last week’s show. We ran out of time with so much good music.

There’s also a set of women bop singers including Sarah Vaughan and Jackie Kane, and tune in for Part 4 in the Harry James aircheck series 1948-51.

Your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV is presented by myself, Greg Poppleton, over radio station 107.3 2SER Sydney. I’ve been bringing you The Phantom Dancer since 1985.

You can now hear it live-streamed and online on Radio 2SER’s website: http://www.2ser.com/phantomdancer.

See the full play list below.

FATS WALLER

Fats Waller was a composer, pianist and entertainer. He wrote such jazz standards as Keeping Out of Mischief Now, Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Honeysuckle Rose. You’ll hear him play his popular tune, The Joint is Jumpin’, on today’s Phantom Dancer on a live WABC NYC broadcast from 1938.

What’s little known about Fats Waller is the classic background that informed his unique jazz stride piano style.

Waller’s grandfather was an accomplished violinist. His mother, Adeline, was a church organist. She taught him to play organ, gave him his first lessons in classical music, and hired a tutor for him. His church musical director introduced him to the works of J.S. Bach.

1920s stride piano stars James P. Johnson and Willie ‘The Lion’ Smith later mentored Fats, teaching him stride piano style and introducing him to the works of impressionistic composers of the nineteenth century.

Enjoy!
