Fats Waller — West Wind

Thanks to scottbraz for the You Tube

 

West Wind was recorded February 1, 1936. The song was written by Ager, Newman and Mencher. In a rare incidence, the video¬† includes the Waller Rhythm band credits (it’s his usual group of players for the mid 1930’s) This Fats record is new to me, I’ve never heard it before, which is a good reason to play it. It certainly is a different record for Fats.
