Art Tatum – Humoresque by Dvorak

This is a video with the legendary piano player and pioneer of jazz music Art Tatum playing a piece originally written by the czech classical music composer Antoni Dvorak. Art Tatum performs this Humoresque by Dvorak in his very own style, adding some ragtime feel to the central part of the music video. We hope you enjoy this video and don’t bother about the relatively poor sound quality. This is more an historic document, even though it sounds nice to me. This piano player is one of the first generation jazz musicians! You certainly should watch this videoclip and listen to Art Tatum treating the classical theme in his very own manner.
