I've had this book for 10 years and it's still my favourite because of the quality and completeness of the transcriptions.
The painstaking detail and overall precision gives you the best shot of understanding the Art Tatum style. After that it's over to you.
There are a couple of minor transcription errors, which are usually obvious and easy to correct, or else stimulate a healthy debate as to what Art Tatum actually played and would have intended.

Superb note-for-note transcriptions of the classics Art-Tatum-style. Still struggling my way through Ain't Misbehavin' but this book is worth every penny. Anonymous
