It is no stretch to state that Art Tatum was the jazz world's first, and arguably greatest, virtuoso. His seemingly effortless abilities on the keyboard placed him far above the most accomplished of his contemporaries.

Art Tatum played beyond the pull of trends, creating music that defied categorization.

He was among the most extraordinary of all jazz musicians; a pianist with wondrous technique who could not only play ridiculously rapid lines with both hands but was harmonically 30 years ahead of his time - all pianists have to deal to a certain extent with Tatum's innovations in order to be taken seriously.

The Album features performances by Louis Bellson, Red Callender, Benny Carter, Buddy DeFranco, Bill Douglass, Harry Edison, Roy Eldridge, Lionel Hampton, Jo Jones, Barney Kessel, Buddy Rich, John Simmons, Alvin Stoller and Ben Webster.
