  • Art Tatum plays The Shout


    Art Tatum plays his self-composed song, The Shout. This version was recorded sometime from 1934-1937. This was influenced by James P. Johnson and Fats Waller (and probably anyone else who played shouts). I have not heard this version on Youtube, so I figured I'd upload and this is actually my favorite version of this song. He does a better job with his thumb work in this song than I've ever heard (such as at 1:55-2:00). This version was recorded in August 1934, around Tatum's exuberant prime.

  • Over the rainbow - Art Tatum


    Art Tatum (Arthur Tatum Jr., Toledo, de Ohio, 13 de octubre de 1909 -- Los Ángeles, 5 de noviembre de 1956), conocido como , fue un pianista estadounidense de jazz.
    Considerado como uno de los más importantes músicos de la historia del jazz, es especialmente reconocido por su virtuosismo en el piano y sus creativas improvisaciones.
    Art Tatum sufrió desde su nacimiento de cataratas, que le dejaron ciego de un ojo y con una visión muy limitada en el otro.
    Aprendió a tocar copiando grabaciones que tenía su madre, y tocaba de oído a la edad de tres años. A los 6 años era capaz de tocar canciones que habían sido interpretadas originalmente como dúos, sin saber él que tenían que ser tocadas por dos intérpretes, lo que hizo que desarrollara una increíble velocidad sin perder nada de precisión.
    Pianista desde su juventud, tocó profesionalmente en Ohio, especialmente en el área de Cleveland, antes de trasladarse a Nueva York en el año 1932.
    Tatum se inspiró en sus contemporáneos James P. Johnson y Fats Waller, que eran abanderados del estilo pianístico conocido como stride. A partir de esta base, Tatum dio un salto cuantitativo en términos de técnica y teoría, y acuñó un nuevo estilo que influiría enormemente en la obra de pianistas posteriores, como Thelonious Monk, Oscar Peterson y Chick Corea.
    A diferencia de la mayoría de músicos de jazz, Tatum raramente abandonó las líneas melódicas originales de las canciones que tocaba, y prefería rearmonizarlas de forma innovadora, cambiando las progresiones de acordes asociadas a las melodías. Los conceptos armónicos de Tatum estaban por delante de su tiempo en los años 30, y serían explorados por los músicos de la era bebop veinte años más tarde. Tenía también inclinación por rellenar los espacios interiores de las melodías con notas de adorno, lo que algunos críticos consideraban gratuito y antijazzístico. Visto con imparcialidad, las notas y frases de estos adornos constituían declaraciones musicales genuinas y apreciables tanto por el público de jazz como por la audiencia clásica. Los admiradores de Tatum consideran que esta pirotecnia es un componente vital de su música.
    Tatum tenía tendencia a realizar grabaciones sin acompañamiento, en parte porque relativamente pocos músicos podían seguir su rápido tempo y su avanzado vocabulario armónico.
    Art Tatum murió en Los Ángeles (California) de una uremia por insuficiencia renal, posiblemente debida al alcohol (Tatum había sido un gran bebedor de cerveza desde sus años de adolescencia). Está enterrado en el Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery, de Glendale (California).
    Tatum recibió póstumamente, en 1989, el premio Grammy a la carrera artística.
