Written in 1942, Fat’s Waller’s “Jitterbug Waltz” is generally regarded as the first true jazz waltz. I have never recorded a solo version of it, but Jamie Findlay and I included it on our 2001 duo record, Out of the Past. At that point my basic arrangement underwent a fair bit of modernization, and what I have transcribed includes many of the ideas that Jamie and I worked up.
