This collection is a real treat. I originally bought this as a gift for my Grandpa...I was shocked to find it to be such a classic. Amazingly complex piano runs, mixed with captivating melodic hooks, all in a unique dinner party atmosphere, blend together to create an incredible listening experience. The way he plays so precisely is really mind blowing. I soon picked up a copy of my own. A fantastic cd and a amazing jazz album for Tatum fans and the casual listener. Art Tatum "20th Century Piano Genius" says it all.
