Art Tatum – You’re Drivin’ Me Crazy

Thanks to gullivior for the You Tube

According to gullivior, this was likely a home recording in 1948. The song was composed and lyrics written by Walter Donaldson in 1930 Upon release it became a big hit. It eventually became a jazz and pop standard. Tatum played a very bouncy take of this tune.  For more on the tune, see here.
