The song White Christmas is undoubtedly the most famous and popular of all the Christmas songs. Berlin wrote the song in early 1940, and it was introduced by Bing Crosby in the 1942 musical ´Holiday Inn´. Crosby had to re-record the song in 1947 because the orignal tapes of 1942 had literally worn out! This 1947 single of White Christmas is recognized as the best-selling single in any music category and Crosby´s recording has sold millions of additional copies as part of numerous albums. The 2007 Guinness Book of Records lists Crosby´s recording as the biggest selling single of all time with an estimated 50 million copies sold thus making it the best selling record in history!

Edited by Paul S. MachlinThe 17 transcriptions in this volume reveal the compositional artistry and comic play of Thomas Wright Fats Waller (1904-43) - virtuoso jazz pianist, organist, singer, bandleader, parodist, comedian, and composer in the Harlem stride tradition. Using pairs of transcriptions of the same tune, this volume explores the creative process within Waller´s improvisations by demonstrating the wide variety of gesture and idea captured at the moment of recording. Alternate takes of I Can´t Give You Anything But Love, for example, show how deep the stylist gulf between two versions of a song could become, even within the same recording session. Alternate takes of Waiting at the End of the Road performed on piano and on pipe organ demonstrate Waller´s ability to exploit the different expressive possibilities inherent in the two instruments. Drawn from recordings made throughout Waller´s career, other pairs include a broad sampling of solo piano and pipe organ performances, popular songs, and small ensemble work: Ain´t Misbehavin´, Gladyse, Honeysuckle Rose, I Ain´t Got Nobody, I´m Crazy ´bout My Baby, and Rusty Pail. A single transcription of Waller´s little-known homemade acetate of That Does It from his 1943 show Early to Bed completes the volume. The accompanying essay explores the nature of Waller´s compositional and lyrical ingenuity, illustrated by several recently discovered manuscript sketches that offer clues to Waller´s musical imagination. Serving both performers and scholars, this volume should provide new insights into Waller´s musical achievements.TRANSCRIPTIONS INCLUDED: [4 versions for solo pipe organ, remainder for solo piano or piano with ensemble or voice.]1.
