Fats Waller — You Look Good To Me

Thanks to Only JazzHQ for the You Tube

The song You Look Good To Me was recorded October 13, 1938 by Fats And Rhythm. Rhythm on that date consisted of Herman Autrey, trumpet; Al Casey, guitar; Cedric Wallace, bass; Slick Jones, drums; Gene Sedric, reeds; and Fats on piano and vocal. The song was written by Walter Donaldson and Billy Rose.

This is another 3 minute gem on a date when Fats and the guys cranked out another 5 gems. I haven’t mentioned what a great and yet underrated guitarist Al Casey was; His solos were short, sweet, and a great addition to the records Fats Waller made.
