Art Tatum – The Complete Solo Masterpieces


I don’t even know WHAT to do with this music. This shit is so far over my head it’s got its moon.

Tatum was sent from another planet, unquestionably.

Have you ever seen video of him playing? It’s like going by a billboard on a high-speed train, and the billboard has a picture of someone playing piano on it …

But it ain’t all about speed, man, there are so many visionary thoughts lightin’ off like brain fireworks on these tracks, it’s like harmonic popcorn …

I don’t even know HOW to listen to this music. All I know is I HAVE to.
