    Impossible to fathom, really. You can only marvel at what you're hearing.

    i know tatum is immortal but the similar artists are nothing to slump at either.
  • Avatar for Acquisition
    the similar artists section of this page shouldn't exist, because there is absolutely no match for tatum

    v I get a feeling that's mostly the case.

    I don't understand how Parker's a household name but Tatum seems virtually unknown outside of jazz aficionados (where he's hugely revered). Is it just bop=modern, everything else=irrelevant or what?

    Tatum Vs. Chopin = battle royale I'd pay to see [3]
  • Avatar for GeorgesDanton
    i would love to see him and Chopin go head to head in a piano battle [2]
  • Avatar for PappaWheelie
    With Django being a distant 2nd, tatum is without question, the greatest _muscian_ to ever have lived.

    Nice. Cool story.

    "One time in 1938 Tatum dropped in to hear Waller play at a club. By way of introduction Waller told the audience, "I just play the piano, but God is in the house tonight.""

    @setonioboy When he was learning how to play he heard player pianos, which actually play 2 pianos in one, and thought it was one person playing it. He just wanted to fit in, and ended up playing about 6 parts with his 2 hands instead of the usual 4.

    BEST JAZZ PIANIST EVER. Where has he been all my life? I've been searching for jazz piano music like this for a while now. Art Tatum is THE shit. I love his solos. I can't get enough of him. Don't think there's a song of his that I don't like. And that's saying a lot.

    I have just subscribed and enjoy this; however, I need some help. I want to hear Vince Guaraldi presently, not someone whose genre is similar. I can't seem to click the buttons in my Library and tune in yet. Help?

    years ago, "The Best of Art Tatum" was my first jazz piano CD I ever owned. Boy, what a godsent it was, in many ways...Years later, I'm still only trying to fathom all the facets of his greatness. A true marvel.
