About the Author:

Review:

'Shipton's survey of Waller's hectic life fairly bristles with fresh information and includes many comments from newly-interviewed survivors of Harlem's heyday.' Peter Vacher, critic and author 'There are few writers who can compare to Shipton. [He] provides an invaluable documentation into Waller's life and contribution to jazz music. Essential reading for anyone interested in developing a better understanding of this jazz giant.' ALLABOUT JAZZ 'This is a highly readable and enjoyable book, filled with photographs. Well-written, scholarly, blessed with a keen insight into the life and times of composer Waller, Fats Waller will find a ready audience for all jazz lovers. Highly recommended.' JAZZ REVIEW
