Description

The first release in a series of eight 4CD box sets chronicling the complete recorded works of one of the great characters of the 20's - 40's jazz scene. An exceptionally talented pianist in the stride manner, Waller also pioneered the use of the pipe organ and Hammond organ in jazz, as a composer and improviser his melodic invention rarely flagged, he wrote many joyously whimsical songs (for others as well as himself) including several now considered 'standards' of the genre, and he was an extremely humorous entertainer. Compiled and remastered by renowned music restorer Ted Kendall (winner of numerous accolades and awards for remastering) the series includes many previously unknown takes and other rarities and every track is taken from original 78s, test pressings and acetates, no secondary sources have been used. This volume opens in 1929 when Waller had established himself among the inner circle of New York session players: he was now becoming a successful songwriter and recording artist, he had contributed to a couple of hit Broadway shows, and he had played Carnegie Hall. The 101 tracks include some of his most highly rated instrumentals such as "Handful Of Keys" and "Smashing Thirds" and successful songs such as "Ain't Misbehavin'", "You're Not The Only Oyster In The Stew", "I've Got A Feeling I'm Fallin" and "Honeysuckle Rose".
