Lee Wiley and Fats Waller — But Not For Me

Thanks to Hans Pfaall for the YouTube

But Not For Me was composed and lyric written by George and Ira Gershwin. This recording by Fats Waller and Lee Wiley was made with the Max Kaminsky Orchestra November 15, 1939. The rest of the personnel included Kaminsky on cornet, Pee Wee Russell, clarinet; Eddie Condon, guitar; Artie Shapiro, bass; George Whettling, drums; Brad Gowans, arranger. I’ve played this before, but this is a good way to start off the year. Fats on Friday.
