I've limited this list to five of the most well known compositions and performances by Fats waller, but do yourself a favor and look for some of the more obscure pieces.  Here is a short bio on Waller for those not familiar with his work.

Broadway gave a fitting tribute to Waller with the musical "Ain't Misbehavin'". Here is the great Nell Carter singing Cash for your Trash
