Art Tatum — There’s a Small Hotel

Thanks to gullivior for the You Tube

There’s a Small Hotel was composed and written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1936. Like other songs they wrote, they wrote this song for one movie and the studio ended up using it in other movies instead. Art Tatum recorded it in 1954. It is available on Disc 5 track 3 on the Art Tatum Complete Pablo Solo Masterpieces. A nice and easy take on a much recorded song. For more on the song, look here.
