Art Tatum — S’Wonderful

Thanks to Okimusic

S’Wonderful¬† was written in 1927 by George (music) and Ira (lyric) Gershwin and afterwards became a widely performed standard. This recording was made in the mid-1950’s and is available on disc 1 cut 7 on the Pablo Art Tatum Group Masterpieces Set. The personnel included Benny Carter, Alto Sax; Louis Bellson, Drums; and Art Tatum, Piano. This performance had very tight ensemble and solo work; no “clams” or “train wrecks,” (musicians jargon for flubs and disasters.) Outstanding musicians.
