    i know tatum is immortal but the similar artists are nothing to slump at either.

    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?

    With Django being a distant 2nd, tatum is without question, the greatest _muscian_ to ever have lived.

    "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 heard he was from outer space

    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.

    he is the pianist ever, other pianists don't come close to his level of fast and articulate playing, no doubt

    Every now and then I must indulge in some Art appreciation.
