Art Tatum

My son has been reading and enjoying the book Piano Starts Here: The Young Art Tatum, by Robert Andrew Parker. Tatum was born with bad eyesight and taught himself to play the piano. The book includes some beautiful descriptions of music. And by the magic of YouTube, we were able to find a video of Art Tatum playing Dvorak's Humoresque, just like in the book.
