So any fans here? He is a great jazz pianist. I just now got around to actually listening to him and I have to say I'm amazed. Tiger Rag is freaking ace to say the very least.

For those who have never heard him before, heres a vid of him playing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYcmWIrtK-E&search=art%20tatum

He is one of the most passionate pianists I've ever heard and still the most preffered jazz pianist in polls even today.

He's probably one of my favorites along with Petrucciani (#1 for sure), Hancock, Jarrett, Monk and Corea.
