With the exception of some recordings made for the U.S. government, they are all live performances, from a wide variety of sources, including off-the-air radio broadcasts, the audio portion of his limited TV appearances, private parties, night club performances, after-hours clubs, transcriptions, recordings in private homes (including his own), and tracks from pressings made gratis for the Voice of America, and for the U.S. Armed Forces during World War II. 212 tracks, including Valse In C # Minor, Opus 64, #2


Art Tatum - piano


"If I were awarding stars (as some publications do) I would have to award a whole galaxy." Herb Young – IAJRC Journal

"10 CDs are joined by a DVD that features Tatum on clips from The March of Time newsreels, The Fabulous Dorseys and a remarkable version of "Yesterdays" from The Spike Jones Show in 1954." Scott Yanow, JazzTimes



"There is enough previously unknown and unissued material combined with reissued unknown and unissued material from a variety of obscure sources to make this of interest to any Tatum, student or would-be student." Cadence

"A box with live recordings of the greatest jazzpianist ever? Priceless." Jazzism, Holland

"Overwhelming, yes, but so is Mt. Everest. You've not heard the piano until you've heard Tatum." George W. Harris - Jazz Weekly
