Fats on Friday — Twenty Four Robbers

Thanks to  cdbpdx for the You Tube

The poster, cdbpdx,  said most of tunes he posts you don’t hear very much. Well, I have a large collection of Fats Waller records and I’ve never heard this one before, so…he’s right! Twenty Four Robbers was recorded May 13, 1941. The personnel were Fats, piano and vocal; John Hamilton, trumpet; John Smith, guitar; Charles Turner, bass; Slick Jones, drums; and Gene Sedric, reeds. They also contributed to the vocal. The song was written by James Young and Ted Buckner. Fats was always full of surprises.
