From film "Fabulous Dorseys," 1947


Despite being legally blind, Ohio native Art Tatum found a way to cement his role in the jazz pantheon. Despite that, as a young, his fast-paced piano playing would earn him drops-in from Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. Tatum greatly admired Earl Hines.

Unfortunately not much footage exists of Tatum playing.
