Zenph Presents: Art Tatum, Piano Starts Here

Dec 08 - Dec 19, 2010

This is a truly one-of-a-kind theatrical production. Sit back and marvel as Doc Hanley, a Harlem jazz club owner reminisces about all the jazz greats who once played his hotspot, and especially about his good friend, Art Tatum. As Hanley spins colorful yarns about the incredible good old days, a state-of-the-art grand piano performs more than a dozen Tatum songs from one of the most revered jazz recordings ever made, Piano Starts Here. This unique one-man show is a time-travel journey back to the days of smoky juke joints, cutting contests, and blistering hot jazz. Theater lovers, jazz lovers, and music lovers alike will be gripped by Tatum's life story and electrified by his breath-taking renditions on the piano.

This show must be experienced to be believed. The lines were wrapped around the block to see the show at the Apollo in Harlem.
