5.0 out of 5 stars God is in the house, again! July 10, 2008
By Brian
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The original "Piano Starts Here" album has been my favorite for many years, or rather - decades. It was plagued by tape hiss, cracking, flat tuning due to stretching of the original master and so on. Every time I'd listen to it I was wondering how wonderful it must've been to hear Art Tatum live, without all these problems of an old recording. But then, I was grateful that anything was preserved at all. Those recordings were 70 years old after all.

And then Zenph studio did the impossible: they managed to extract all the information from the original recording, way beyond capabilities of today's MIDI standard, and then re-performed it at the place where the original performance took place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. I had the pleasure to be there and listen to the master live! What an experience that was... one can only wish for more of the same.

So now, the old used and abused "Piano starts here" in my collection is replaced by the new recording of the true Jazz Master and I just can't get enough of it. The muddy sound of the original recording which was most offensive in fast passages in "Tiger Rag" and "Tatum-Pole Boogie", is now replaced by perfect clarity and sheer brilliance that will bring true joy of Tatum improvisations to the listener.

If you are having reservations due to technology used to produce this recording, think no more: this album is for purists, it has no traces of technology in it, it is simply Art Tatum at his best. Finally, Art Tatum gets the treatment he deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Amazing Zenph Studios Has Done It Again! June 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Zenph Studios, who dazzled me with their Glenn Gould re-performance of Bach's Goldberg Variations has somehow managed to raise the bar. I have just purchased two more of ART TATUM: PIANO STARTS HERE to give as gifts.

I cannot be more blown away by the artistry and magic of Art Tatum. Zenph with this Sony/BMG release has uncovered nuance and wizardry that has been lost to time. This CD, especially the binaural headphone version, allows the listener to experience Tatum's playing as HE heard it.

Extraordinary talent deserves an extrodinary CD like this one. Thanks Zenph Studios and Sony BMG. Tatum lives agin!

It is no great secret that the brilliant recordings of the late, great Art Tatum are not of the best audio quality. This Zenph recreation of Tatum goes a long way to rectifying that problem. This is one of the most delightful and best-sounding piano SACDs I own.

Just get a copy, open it wide on the system and let it roll through the house...

If you know Tatum, you will be in piano heaven. Absolutely amazing stuff!

BUY IT NOW!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tatum in great form August 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is a must have for anyone other than the most hardened luddite that prefers awful sound quality to an unbelievable "re-performance". From what I understand, Zenph actually re-performed the concert in front of a live audience at the Shrine Auditorium to get some of the same ambiance of the original.

As a result, the original recording that had awful sound quality has now set the piano free of all of the cloudiness.

The album has everything.. SACD surround, normal CD, and even a binaural version for headphone listening.

I do not need to comment on the performance itself. However, it is classic Art Tatum...which is to say it is spectacular.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Piano Recording June 27, 2008
By Spaz
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Art Tatum re-recording is a must for any piano music lover. It captures the spirit and energy of the original Art Tatum album. It matches the intensity of the earlier Zenph Studio recording of the Glen Gould - Goldberg Variations. I am amazed at the wonderful interpretation and clarity that is built into these recordings and highly recommend both to any serious music lover. I look forward to future recordings by Zenph.

Great performance as well as great sound, considering the age of this performance. Remastering has done a great job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my goodness ... June 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD
For any of you who love Art Tatum, jazz and/or the piano this is a must!

What a difference between the original recording and the Re-Performance ... I actually got goose bumps, it felt and sounded like Tatum was in the room playing. Some how the combination of performer and Zenph process created this magic. The reality is that it's good to own the original and this new release but I cannot stop listening to the new release - the sound is just so crisp.

Gould, now Tatum ... really looking forward to what's next!

You won't find better recording / mastering quality. However, I liked the 1st Zenph release, Gelnn Gould better. A good demo disc if you have good SACD and good hi-fi system.
