A nice collection of Fats Waller tunes. Mr. Armstrong delivers in his inimitable style. There are few real standouts on this record but it's hard to beat a master at his own game.

From Nymith
A step-down from the amazing W.C. Handy tribute of the year before. A solid collection of songs but only the final two captivate me, 'Black and Blue' with its darkness and 'Ain't Misbehavin' with its energy.

Fantastic recording! Why did I put off listening to it for so long? I don't think anyone could have done better by these marvellous songs. Black and Blue... wow!

An enjoyable album, with Louie singing some of Fats Waller's greatest tunes. Often upbeat, sometimes smooth and swinging. Unfortunately, he didn't do justice to Fats's best song "Ain't Misbehavin'"
