In my opinion, along with Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum is the greatest jazz pianist. I know there are other's favorites, but these are mine. Tatum's ability to construct complex harmonies along with his dexterity is unmatched in the world of jazz and even among the great classical artists.

Just listen to the magic he weaves in "Yesterdays".

Personal note:
I've been in the hospital with pneumonia for few days. Back home and feeling well again! I have an aortic valve replacement scheduled in the near future. After that, as soon as they put in a brain, I'll be good to go!!
Cheers,
Mark

Hang in there! My sister had an aortic valve replacement in 2005. She's still active and a municipal judge, at 76 next month.

I agree with your assessment of Oscar and Art. My jazz collection includes a couple from each. The Zenph Studios re-creation of his early work is amazing.
