Tatum is considered one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time. His performances were hailed for their technical proficiency and creativity, which set a new standard for jazz piano virtuosity.
Dan not only knew Art Tatum well, but presented him as a soloist for the first time, which Tatum was extremely grateful, and thanked him for.
