Willow Tree

19 04 2012

Willow Tree—T. Waller/A. Razaf, 1928 (recorded April 19, 2012) I recorded this Fats Waller blues while in the last stages of my recovery from an upper resp infection, hence the raspy vocal. And hence the pallid, unshaven look. Bleah.

Thanks to the great Mildred Bailey for introducing me to this tune.

Hey, Dan. It’s a 1920s Lyon & Healy, made out of what I was told is monkey pod wood. It’s got a pretty blond color and a nice tone. Cheers!
