Da TATUM insane left hand 10th jumps texture would have been great to see on vid.

It’s unique.

randomly, da fucked thing about da :rocky: compositions is he COULD have invented sum nu techs suitable only to enormous hands mofo, but harshly, wanted to make his works accessible to any mofo and did not invent any new textures.


Do you think Tatum could’ve played Chopet 10/1?

hmmm, it’s hard to say. He invented some of his own special textures but they are closer to classical era runs, plus custom left hand fuckery…

He’d be capable of playing some classical rep but I doubt it would have been worthwhile.

Maybe his Chopin 16th Prelude could have been interesting. It would be kind of unfair to ask a jazz mofo to unleash a classical 88 song.

I’d rather hear a Tatum jazz impro.

Hahahaha da zepp objective azzezzment of da TAT tech

jazz is too hard for anybody to be good at it.

is da tatum a jazz mofo or a player of jazz arrangements? Is there a diff?

Tru jazz imrov types that play from inner hearing. Insane freakz.

Seems like most are doing filler noodles and farting out licks they’ve memorized in the keyz.

Tho I prefer da tatum type players.
