Gene Sedric in New York Yacht Club - the 1930's

from Hear Me Talkin' To Ya: The Classic Story of Jazz as Told by the Men Who Made It, page 265:

I remember when we were playing the Yacht Club. All the publishers used to go there. They liked Fats and they'd all want his songs. I remember one night when he played "If I Had You." He started crying. It turned out he was thinking about his earlier days and about all the hits he had given away.
