Fats Waller — Carolina Shout

Thanks to Dylan Hsu for the You Tube

The Carolina Shout was written by James Price Johnson and was the “admission test” for all pianists whose ambition was to become a member of the Harlem Stride Piano Players, in the 1920’s. As you can hear, Fats Waller passed the test with flying colors.
