Handful of Keys


Fats Waller’s stride classic arranged for organ.

Fats Waller was one of the finest jazz pianists we ever saw. He sadly died at a very early age, but not before leaving us with hundreds of happy-go-lucky compositions including this stride piano favourite.

Handful of Keys is a short, up-tempo stride masterpiece showing off a player’s technical abilities.

Difficulty level: this organ arrangement is not for the faint-hearted – it’s fast, furious but fun!

Definitely something to shock your audiences!
