CDs

Catalogue No: STV1018333
Artist: Art Tatum
Series: Art Tatum Live
Format: Audio / Video | Recorded Performance
This is the third of an eight CD, 188-track set comprised of previously unissued broadcast performances by the legendary jazz pianist, Art Tatum. He was one of the most brilliant pianists - in any genre - who ever lived. His astonishing technique, fantastic creativity and blinding speed and virtuosity have never been equaled. This CD is both a textbook in piano playing and also a thriller, because what Tatum does, seems impossible. The first two numbers, from 1945 and 1946, are from V-discs. The next eight are radio broadcasts and the remainder are from two private-party sessions in 1949, wher his playing is more free than in the studio. The repertiore consists of popular tunes of the day, plus a Chopin waltz.
