They Say All Music Guide

Pianist and vocalist Pat Flowers wanted to be Fats Waller. As a young man Flowers would follow Waller, trying to get gigs playing in the lobby of the hall at which Fats would be performing. For his own recording sessions he would hire musicians like Herman Autrey, Gene “Honey Bear” Sedric, Slick Jones, and Cedric Wallace, all members of Fats Waller’s Rhythm. Flowers was even managed for a short time by Waller’s manager Ed Kirkeby making records under the moniker Pat Flowers and His Rhythm. These 24 sides recorded between 1945 and 1947 showcase Flowers piano playing and singing in the ’30s style of, guess who. Featured are four recordings for the Hit Record label, including “Aint Misbehavin” and the Fats inspired “Bach Prelude and Fugue.” The remaining tunes are mainly novelties like “Save the Bones for Henry Jones,” “Aloysius Do the Dishes,” and “Exhilarated, Exasperated, Exhausted” recorded for RCA Victor (the label Fats Waller recorded for.) – Al Campbell
