Fats Waller- Lulu’s Back in Town

Thanks Music Prof78 for the You Tube

Lulu’s Back in Town was written by Al Dubin and Harry Warren for the film Broadway Gondolier. This version by Fats was recorded in 1935. Personnel included: Herman Autrey, Trumpet; Rudy Powell, reeds; Al Casey, Guitar; Charles Turner, bass; Harry Dial, drums; Fats, piano and vocal.

Although the song wasn’t written for Fats, this version by Fats is unbeatable.
