I am suprised to be the first person to review this. Yet another excellent package from Proper Box. As always, they have packaged a good selection of material. Mostly piano solos, but there is some small group material here. Also some live concert work.
Tatum's playing technique was phenominal. If you have not heard Art Tatum before, you are recommended to buy this as a good introduction. At less than (...)for 4CDs, the value is outstanding!
This is music that makes you glad to be alive to listen to it. In just one of these little nuggets you'll find all the creativity and technique some musicians take a lifetime to muster ( if then! ). The music just flows from the man.
"Proper" have done a good job with the ancient source material and the booklet has a great introduction and commentary.
It's one of the very few box sets that I've played all the way through more than once.
