  • March 19, 2009 The Art Tatum Collection

    Very good arrangements. Not one for faint hearted; though the huge stretches and extremely fast passages that embody Tatum's style make each piece a delight to play.

  • February 19, 2008 What you need to play like Art

    These transcriptions give what you need to play like Art Tatum if you have what it takes of technique,speed, tonal control and feeling. These pieces ARE complicated to read, both rythmically and harmonically but everyting is there allthough I had wished an indication of the date of each recording...

    used for transcription as many different recordings exist. I strongly recommend every hopeful to get familiar with Art's style and recordings prior to try playing these pieces yourself.

    Difficulty Level:
  • October 14, 2007 Right notes - bad notation

    What happened to the artistic transcription standards of Morris Feldman and the like? I used to glean music theory and reharmonization techniques from jazz piano transcriptions published in the 1940s and '50s. Notation software has made it all too easy for anyone to input random accidentals into time, without attention...

    to the harmonic statement of the improvisor, and then publish. It is a delight to see these quintissential works presented to the public. However, The Tatum transcriptions have been available as MIDI files on the web for years, and the manuscripts were in private collections years before that. There is no excuse to release shoddy transcriptions to press. Yes, the notes are there and accurate, but one has to continually reconcile the Dbs in the left hand with C#s in the right. We shouldn't have to employ our own knowledge of music to decipher meaning out of this amalgams of notes.

  • June 23, 2006 authentic and excellent transcriptions

    Excellent transcriptions and authentic. I have purchased other Art Tatum sheet music transcriptions but this is the best one by far. I have Tatum's 1933 recordings and many of these transcriptions are right on the money.

  • September 15, 2005 Perfect Transcriptions

    I bought a couple of Art Tatum Music CDs and I bought this book and I saw that the transcriptions were perfect. I had the songs The Man I love, Tiger Rag and more on my Cd's and I heard and saw that the transcriptions are absolutely perfect
