critics' view

Released December 1956 (Imperial LP-9028). Fats was buzzin’ on his a-game in 1956 – this was his third LP of the year and it kept up the level of brilliance. Mostly current material with a few sides from the previous years thrown in to make up the numbers. There are two covers on this one – he delivers his classic rendition of “Blueberry Hill” (Sammy Kaye with Tommy Ryan, 1940) and a perky interpretation of “What’s The Reason (I’m Not Pleasing You)” (The Six Swingers, 1934). The mournful “Blue Monday” simply slays and “So Long” is yet another Fats classic. Tricky third album? Not a bit of it. The big man’s got hard hitters lurking in every corner…
