Maurice "Fats" Waller"???!!

Oscar Grillo dijo...

Thomas Waller had a son called Maurice who was born in 1927. I know his biography of "Fats" from 1977 but did he play the piano too?

Yes, he did play the piano.
But I´m not sure that Maurice (only 15 years old in 1940) played this Condon´s session, despite of the belgian Walter Bruyninckx´s discography.

In "KINGS OF JAZZ: Fats Waller" by Charles Fox (Author)

"...Hey, Stop Kissin´ My Sister, and ´Tain´t Nobody's Bizness If I Do. By this time John Hamilton had begun to play trumpet with the group, instead of Herman Autrey, but otherwise the personnel stayed unchanged. Fats also re corded some transcriptions for broadcasting, both as a soloist and with the band, most of which have now been released commercially. In addition he played with Max Kaminsky's orchestra when it accompanied the singer Lee Wiley on a handful of titles, and he also sat in alongside Marty Marsala, George Brunies and Pee Wee Russell on a session for the Commodore label under Eddie Condon's leadership. As Fats was under contract to the Victor company he displayed untypical prudence by using a pseudonym in this case the name of his son, Maurice.
Finally, to round off 1940, Fats and his Rhythm appeared in four short films: Ain´t Misbehavin´, Honeysuckle Rose, Your Feet's Too Big, and The Joint is Jumpin´."

Talking about the cutting about Maurice. I haven't heard the term "progressive Jazz" since the late fifties!!! I makes me think about Stan Kenton!
