Fats Waller - "Rhythm and Romance" (1937)
Fats Waller，傳統爵士 （20s,30s）期間最出名的鋼琴演奏家，作曲家之一。他左手的演繹方法是用跳躍式的4／4拍，保持了傳統爵士的swing; 而右手卻是靈活自由的圍繞著主旋律「跳舞」的即興演奏。因此，Fats Waller為新式的爵士作出了很大的貢獻。他也是很一名很棒的作曲家。很多爵士的經典歌曲都是由他編寫的，例如 "Ain't Misbehavin" 和 "Honeysuckle Rose"都曾被列入了Grammy 的hall of frame，並成為很多爵士樂隊演奏時的必選之曲。可惜這位音樂天才英年早逝，終年39歲。
Fats Waller is one of the most famous jazz musicians, composers during the traditional jazz era (20s, 30s). His left hand plays in jumping style with a 4/4 rhythm beat, which keeps its swing of traditional jazz; while his right hand, improvise around the main melody freely just like it is dancing. Therefore, Fats contributed a high degree towards the coming modern jazz. He was also a fantastic composer. Many famous jazz standards were written by him, for example "Ain't Misbehavin'" and "Honeyhuckle Rose", both song were listed in the Grammy hall of frame, and were re-performed by many other musicians.
Sadly, this genius died at a younge age when he was 39.
