Fats Waller — Smashing Thirds

Thanks to Peter Zillmer for the You Tube

Smashing Thirds was a solo piano recording made September 24, 1929. This was a tune composed for Harlem rent party cutting contests. This was the title track of another of Mike Lipskin’s RCA reissue LP’s from 1968, which I bought at the Jazz Man Record Shop. It’s among the records I heard in that era that turned my head around.
