Before you get all humpy like this is just a last minute hodge-podge throw-it-together post for the Saturday Matinee, chill. It’s all good, and it’s all connected in an odd sort of way…
Fats Waller‘s “Aint Misbehavin'” (1929) was my introduction to early jazz before I knew who Fats Waller was. 1930s Jazz = Best Jazz in my book.
And then Art Tatum ripped it all apart and completely rebuilt the engine.
Gonna jump a few decades to Miles Davis‘ “Tutu.”
Yep, Leon Redbone on Carson, playing “Diddy-Wah-Diddy,” which is somehow apropos for Mardi Gras gris gris gumbo yaya.
Have a great weekend folks, and be back here tomorrow for more fun.
