The Art of Tatum

“I only play the piano, but tonight God is in the house.” That’s what Fats Waller said about Art Tatum, the greatest jazz piano player in history.

Now four dazzling, distinct pianists are here to honor his legacy: Jazz in July artistic director Bill Charlap, rising piano star Aaron Diehl, the brilliant Roger Kellaway and the Memphis-born virtuoso Harold Mabern. Add Mabern protégés John Webber and Joe Farnsworth on bass and drums, plus tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander — and let the Tatum legend grow.
