Solo performer: Art Tatum (piano).
Includes liner notes by Dave Dexter, Jr.
On the first of two LPs featuring Tatum live at the Crescendo Club in 1950, the great pianist interprets a dozen standards in familiar but impressive fashion. His routines on some tunes became set pieces but still were quite remarkable as evidenced by this fine performance. ~ Scott Yanow
