Art Tatum Group Masterpieces — Street of Dreams (Reprise)

Thanks to Universal Music Group for the You Tube

I played this Art Tatum version of Street of Dreams  back in August and this is what I wrote:

One of the bittersweet tunes popular in the 1940’s and 50’s, although it was first written in 1932 by Sam Lewis and Victor Young.. My favorite vocal version of this song was sung by Lee Wiley, accompanied by Joe Bushkin on solo piano.  This record is from Vol 1 of the Tatum Group Masterpieces on Pablo with Benny Carter, alto sax, Louis Bellson, drums, and Art Tatum on Piano. None but the best. Norman Granz created a treasure trove when he made these records.

Tomorrow, I’ll play the Lee Wiley version of Street of Dreams for a side-by-side comparison.
