Fats Waller

Serge Dutfoy is a French comic artist and jazz pianist. He has been playing with the Blue Rhythm Band, which is considered the oldest French amateur jazz orchestra, since 1968. He published his first drawings in the magazines Jazz Hot and Rock 'n' Folk in 1967, and has mainly worked as a teacher in plastic arts in his hometown Saint-Quentin. He started making comics in the 1987s. His first efforts were some short stories for Rock 'n' Folk, and a story based on the life of American jazz musician Fats Waller, which remained unpublished.
