Darlene Remembers Duke, Jonathan Plays Fats is a 1982 album by Jo Stafford and Paul Weston in which they perform in character as Jonathan and Darlene Edwards. The duo put their own unique interpretation on the music of Duke Ellington and Fats Waller with Stafford singing deliberately off key, while Weston plays an out of tune piano. The album was issued by Corinthian Records (COR-117). Billboard reviewed the album when it was newly released, saying, "the sounds they achieve may well lead to another Grammy for the duo next year."[1][2] Stafford and Weston, in their personas of Jonathan and Darlene Edwards, were interviewed by Los Angeles Magazine following the release of the album.[3]
