Pioneering pianist/composer Thomas “Fats” Waller, the King of Jazz Piano, jumped on the R&B charts for the first and last time with “The Jitterbug Waltz,” rising to #6.

His first of those sixty-three hits was the immortal “Ain’t Misbehavin’ ” (#17), a 1929 jazz standard, which was the last name of the ’70s Broadway musical honoring his songs.
