6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Michael Brad Richman HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on January 21, 2001
Format: Audio CD
Before Norman Granz brought Art Tatum into the studio a half-dozen times in 1955-56 to record what would become known as the "Group Masterpieces," he brought the legendary pianist into the studio nearly a dozen times from 1953-55 to record what would become the eight CD volumes of the "Solo Masterpieces." (By the way, feel free to check out my reviews of Group Masterpieces Volumes 3, 4 & 6, and of the Boxed Set collecting all eight volumes.) Art Tatum is arguably the greatest pianist in the history of jazz, and the world owes a great debt to Mr. Granz for having the insight to document him in such variety and quantity. For those of you who are hesitating because this is a solo jazz recording, don't! Art has a style of playing flurries of notes, so that at any given time it sounds like a trio session. But don't get the wrong impression, Tatum is not merely a master technician, but a sensitive and sincere virtuoso. Another intimidating aspect of these "Masterpiece" volumes, whether it is the Group or Solo, is the shear number of them. I would suggest, as the Penguin Guide does, to start with Volumes 4 or 6, but any one of them will do fine for they are all truly, modern piano masterpieces.

We now have some ideas on a century of jazz concept and performance. Books, records, interviews, film in all forms have piled up. Some attempt to have lists, to declare numbers and champions. It is futility and ephemera to do so. If one loves, say, jazz piano, one loves, to a degree, all interesting and competent players, from Willie the Lion to Lennie Tristano, from Fats Waller to George Russell. But there are hundreds of good players worth hearing. Just as true, there is only one Art Tatum. No-one played more piano, in fact, I can't think of one musician, heard alone, solo, unadorned, unaltered, unenhanced, who made more music, in variations, nuances and touches of melody, harmony, rhythm, dynamics, ingenuity and polish. Art Tatum is the greatest artist in jazz to astound so many other greats who continue to astound us. Try to play the piano; try to understand mechanical, aesthetic and artistic requirements and challenges. Try to estimate your gap to reach up to some Tatumlike standard. Breathe in peacefully. Teddy Wilson said that Tatum would make "us all" seem like amateurs. But we all continue, as art and Art deserve that. Listen to Prisoner of Love, but, anything will do, of hundreds. It's simply beautiful.

Tatum is an unbelievable virtuoso! Had he gotten paid by the note, he'd have been a millionaire in one gig.
