Description

This CD, the ninth in the series, consists entirely of previously unreleased material from 1944, 1945 and 1952. The tunes include solo piano, duo, trio and large orchestra accompaniment. The music itself was recorded at radio broadcasts, at an after hours club in LA and even at Art's own home. The repertoire is basically 'standard Tatum' which includes Blue Skies, Jitterbug Waltz and Tea For Two. Besides playing piano on all tracks, Tatum also occasionally sings and talks about the music he's playing. Art Tatum was possibly the greatest American jazz pianist of all time - his harmonic daring, rhythmic ingenuity, incredibly precise timing and overall inventiveness have never been equaled. Tatum's music is constantly taking unexpected twists and turns but at the same time is very musical and, in spite of his often breakneck tempo, logical and relaxed. The musical genius in evidence here means that new insights are gained every time you listen to this amazing CD.

Featuring Slam Stewart on bass and The Alan Roth Orchestra with strings.
