Art Tatum — How High The Moon

Originally written: music, Morgan Lewis; lyrics, Nancy Hamilton; for the Broadway Show  Two For The Show.

This is from the 1949 Shrine Auditorium Concert re-engineered by Zenph Studios.    I think we hear some of Art Tatum’s sense of humor here.  Some people have objected to the re engineering of the original sound but it sounds good to me.  But, I’m not that fussy.
