Battery Bounce

Third in the series. I cannot add anything worthwhile; so here's what Allmusic.com has to say. "This wonderful compilation -- the third volume in the complete recordings of Art Tatum -- will delight seasoned Tatum lovers and may also serve as the perfect introduction for those who seek initiation. That's because this portion of the Tatum chronology just happens to feature the pianist in his very prime as soloist, accompanist, and bandleader. The first 11 tracks were originally issued on the Decca label. Three excellent piano solos from July 1940 are followed by two sessions' worth of swinging instrumentals and strongly steeped blues sung by Kansas City's Joe Turner. Trumpeter Joe Thomas and clarinetist Edmond Hall were perfect foils for this singer. Hall's sinewy solos enliven "Stompin' at the Savoy" and Tatum's fine piece of boogie, "Battery Bounce." Guitarists John Collins and Oscar Moore each bring a special sense of conviviality to the ensembles. Moving ahead to January 1944, Tatum is heard with Tiny Grimes and Slam Stewart on a series of dazzling trio sides, most of which first appeared on the Brunswick label. These stunning collaborations are prized for their wealth of invention and relaxed intimacy." Enjoy. +
