This live CD was recorded at the newly-opened Embers Club in New York City in 1951. The first four tunes are trio numbers with Everett Barksdale on guitar and Slam Stewart on bass. The remainder are piano solos. Art Tatum was a true, unique genius of jazz. His lightning speed, dynamics, nuances and complex ideas on the keyboard have never been equaled. The repertoire consists mostly of crowd-pleasers, including compositions by Duke Ellington, the Gershwin brothers, Benny Goodman, Rogers and Hart, Harlen Arlen and of course Art Tatum's mentor, Fats Waller. In spite of the noisy audience on these live sessions, Tatum suceeds in showing the audience, and CD listener, why he deserves his status as the father of all jazz pianists. While Tatum plays mostly tunes, and quotes of tunes, that the audience recognizes, it doesn't diminish the quality of his playing.

These never-released-before live sessions include an interesting three-minute interview with jazz journalist Leonard Feather.
