  • May 09, 2008 Great Transcriptions of Fats Waller Piano Solos

    Paul Poznak has created a collection of the best Fats Waller Piano hits transcribing note for note what he has heard on recordings so that a pianist like me who doesn't have the ability to pick up by ear complicated music such as this can have the satifying experience...

    of playing these great songs just as Fats would have played them.

    No matter what style you like best I think that you're going fall in love with Fats Waller. He created such a unique style, which has made him stand out from all the other pianists of his time. Everyone with truly be in amazed when you sit down at...

  • February 19, 2008 Very valuable

    I have waited for very long to come across exact transcriptions of Fats Waller's best piano solos. Until now I had only seen inexact or shortened versions, often exluding the most difficult and exciting parts. Paul Posnaks insight here is very valuable and helps those who have the abilities...

    to get very close to Fats's sound, allthough it's very hard. I was, however, slightly disapointed to see some faults, certainly due to to the transition from Mr. Posnak's own scores to the print; there are some accidentals missing and some chords are rythmicaly misplaced but this is rather easy to repair if you know the recordings. I hope that some of the great missing solos will also be edited, as 'Carolina Shout', 'Georgia on my mind' and 'Hallelujah'. 5 stars for the painstaking pioneer work for transcribing some of the greatest and finest stride solo pieces ever.

    I like this collection which enables me to sound like Fats....or at least a bit of it. The touch that was his can few imitate, but his music is still very much alive.
