Valse de Wasso

I've heard various tunes entitled "Valse de Wasso", by various players, including Stochelo Rosenberg, Jimmy Rosenberg and Tcha Limberger, all amazing yet all different.

Apologies if this is well trampled territory, but what's the story with these waltzes? Are they all directly attributable to Wasso Grunholz, dedicated to him or merely examples of a style of which he is the acknowledged originator? Are there many more Valses de Wasso?

most of them are composed by Wasso, who generally didn't bother to name them...

Are any Wasso Grunholtz recordings available? I'd like to hear the original versions of his waltzes.

he's made some recordings in the 70s or so but to my recollection, the waltzes aren't there.... otherwise his church (pentecostal) doesn't approve of its members performting (publicly)/recordng music outside the church....

there is a track or two on the stochelo book though
