Fats Waller — Do You Have To Go

Thanks to cdbpdx

Do You Have To Go was written and composed by Anita and Fats Waller. This version was recorded by March 20, 1941. Personnel included John Hamilton, trumpet; Al Casey, Guitar; Cedric Wallace, Bass; Slick Jones, drums, Gene Sedric, Reeds; and Fats on piano and vocal. A laid back performance from Fats and the band. Nice interplay between Fats,  Sedric, and Hamilton in the middle.
