About Art Tatum: Piano Starts Here - Off Broadway

Show Info


Art Tatum was among the most extraordinary of all jazz musicians, a pianist with wondrous technique who could not only play rapid lines with both hands. Able to play stride, swing, and boogie-woogie with speed and complexity that could only previously be imagined, Tatum's quick reflexes and boundless imagination kept his improvisations filled with fresh ideas that put him way ahead of his contemporaries.

Tatum, an unmatched piano virtuoso and brilliant improviser, developed a style characterized by complex musical embroidery, such as rapid runs and shifting rhythms.
