Some time ago I uploaded the brilliant vocal version of this by Aileen Stanley, but this is an equally brilliant instrumental version (except for a short scat solo). Hines took classical piano lessons and played organ in his local Baptist church but also developed an ear for popular show tunes and was able to remember and play songs he heard in theaters. t the age of 17, Hines moved away from home to take a job playing with Lois Deppe & his Serenaders. In 1925 he moved to Chicago. Armstrong and Hines became good friends and got jobs playing together in Dickerson's band. In 1927 this became Louis Armstrong's band under Hines' direction. In 1928 Hines began leading his own band, which for 11 years his was "The Band" in The Grand Terrace Café in Chicago. Hines led his big band until 1948, taking time out to front the Duke Ellington orchestra in 1944 while Duke was ill, but by then the big-band era was over. As for this amazing performance, it was recorded in 1929.

Earl started out playing trumpet and switched to piano at the age of 9. I love all his work. Do you have "Beau Koo Jack"? This would be from the same recording session as "Everybody Loves My baby".
Thank you for sharing this great post.

A great band and a terrific number - for more than half a century I puzzled over Fats Waller's version - what was the line he sang after "She's got a form like Venus" ? It sometimes drove me crazy trying to find out. Thanks to Patrick's posting of the Aileen Stanley I now know that it's "Honest, I ain't talking Greek". A bit disappointing that it wasn't more profound but I sleep easier at last.
