TATUM Art

TATUM ART ARTHUR JR. (P).

Dayton, Ohio. 13/10/1919. – Los Angeles, California. 5/11/1956.

Cieco di un occhio e gravemente menomato nell’altro, ha studiato a Columbus nell’Ohio in una scuola per ciechi e poi alla Toledo School of Music. Ha debuttato nella formazione di Speed Webb, poi ha lavorato in una radio locale e accompagnato Adelaide Hall. Dal 1934 al 1935 ha lavorato a Cleveland e nel 1935 al “Three Deuces” di Chicago. Nel 1936 si è trasferito a Hollywood ed in seguito ha vissuto per tre anni a Londra. Nel 1939 è tornato a New York e nel 1943 ha messo su un trio con Tiny Grimes e Slam Stewart, riscuotendo molto successo, ma comunque presto è tornato ad esibirsi da solo. Ha registrato per Norman Granz con Roy Eldridge, Lionel Hampton, Ben Webster, Benny Carter, Buddy DeFranco, Buddy Rich una serie di dischi di grande successo. La sua tecnica sopraffina lo fa considerare uno dei più grandi pianisti di Jazz, ma anche lo limita artisticamente. Come improvvisatore appare a volte superficiale. Resta comunque uno dei geni strumentali prodotti dal jazz e non c’è da stupirsi che spesso grandi maestri classici come Walter Gieseking o Vladimir Horowitz indugiassero spesso in Club dove suonava Tatum osservando stupiti mentre dalla tastiera sgorgavano fiumi di note. Doveva essere lasciato libero per dare il meglio di sé, come accompagnatore sopraffaceva il partner, suonava per suo conto indifferente alle necessità del solista. La sua apparizione sulla scena del Jazz ha segnato un grande progresso del piano solo.
