I thought Tatum had died in the 40's. TIL.

Tatum is one of my all-time favorite players. If you listen past the virtuostic pyrotechnics and the firehose of musical ideas you can hear great depth of beauty and soul.
A philosopher I know has said that if the devil offered him a bargain, he would opt to play like Tatum. I can’t disagree.
