Overview

Ain't Misbehavin' originated as a simple song by Thomas "Fats" Waller that he sold for $500 and that was then performed by Louis Armstrong. In 1978, it became the title track of a cabaret show featuring the music of Waller. It was such a considerable success that it became a Broadway show, and was resurrected in 1988 for a brief stint. Ain't Misbehavin' won numerous Tonys, not the least of which was the award for Best Musical. The original Broadway cast recording features the Tony Award-winning performance of Nell Carter and captures the cabaret feel of the show that made it so charming and refreshing. An excellent recording of the show.
