Art Tatum –Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Thanks again to gullivior for the You Tube

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is from disc 4 track 17 of the Art Tatum Complete Pablo Solo Masterpieces. This version was recorded in 1953. The song was composed and written by Jerome Kern and Otto Harbach. Smoke Gets in Your Eyes was introduced in the musical Roberta in 1933 and later became a standard. gullivior certainly finds the right picture for the right song.
