Fats on Friday— A Good Man Is Hard To Find

Thanks to Dominik Feri for the You Tube

A Good Man is Hard To Find was a blues song written by Eddie Green and made popular first by Bessie Smith. The unique feature of this version is Fats’s piano playing from the solo introduction and then backup through Sedric’s and Autrey’s solos. This was recorded December 7, 1938, with Fats, piano and vocal; Herman Autrey, trumpet; Al Casey, guitar; Cedric Wallace, bass; Slick Jones, drums; and Gene Sedric, reeds. Another three minute gem from Fats Waller and his Rhythm.
