Art Tatum, The Art Tatum Solo Masterpieces Volume 1
2001 | Label: Fantasy / Pablo

Any one edition drawn from this eight-CD set will do. And any one is enough to give a sense of the enormity of Tatum's genius and its far-reaching effects on all the music that followed. Tatum simply played more piano — got more out the instrument — than any other musician. He was a direct link from the whorehouse piano men to the classical soloist.

Jazz Piano Starts Here

All the jazz greats learned from Tatum and many were downstream imitators of his style. But no one, except Bach–who used to play keyboards with his hands AND feet at once, played more parts at once. A first rate mind and first rate music. When we first had this on tape, my wife and I could drive for hours with the repeat button on and Tatum's magical playing streaming in the car.

The Art Tatum Solo Masterpieces Vol 1

misternau

Art Tatum is arguably the greatest piano player of all time, in any genre. This first of a series of recordings shows off his astonishing virtuosity and a style that has been emulated for 50 years. A beautiful collection of jazz standards, the set is timeless, important, and thoroughly enjoyable. (from 50words.net)

What can you say?

The-Whole-Guitarist

What -can- you say about one of, if not the, central figure in jazz piano. A prodigious imagination and facility enabled Tatum to reel off versions of standards that reveal the pieces in ways the composers, and even other jazz pianists, could never have imagined.

Music in a Hurry: Standard Transcriptions

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

When the Roots signed on as Jimmy Fallon's Late Night house band, there was a curious catch: NBC wouldn't be paying for the rights to any music, not even the band's own. Consequently. the Roots had to compose dozens of new pieces for on-air use. The upside: those pieces needed only be long enough to play the show in and out of commercials, or to accompany guests from the wings to the desk. Everything old becomes… more »
