Fats Waller — Something Tells Me

Thanks to Music my life for the You Tube

The song Something Tells Me was written by Johnny Mercer and Harry Warren. This performance by Fats Waller and Rhythm was recorded March 11, 1938, almost 80 years ago. The personnel included Herman Autrey, trumpet; Gene Sedric, reeds; Al Casey, guitar; Cedric Wallace, bass; Slick Jones, drums; and Fats on piano, celeste, and vocal. The horns were cookin’ on this track.

The poster got this track from the reissue LP African Ripples which was produced by Mike Lipskin in 1969. I bought  this reissue for the U.S. market from Don Brown and the Jazz Man Record Shop, the poster has the reissue for the Italian market. This series was my introduction to Fats Waller.
