OK, so Art Tatum, the jazz pianist, died 50 years ago. But that doesn’t mean you can’t experience and appreciate his music. On Saturday, June 20 2009, The Jazz Museum in Harlem will offer a free (yes, FREE) Art Tatum program, also featuring the great Ben Webster in: 2009, A Centennial Celebration.
Program includes biographical overview, documentaries and an expert panel. It’s a great way ot learn more about the artists and the kind of music you love. This event begins at 10am and runs till 4pm. Jam-packed with informative sessions, this should not be missed, especially for the price!
