I've got several Art Tatum LP's and always found his style a bit too busy and in your face, but you put him with two other prima donnas like Lionel Hampton and Buddy Rich and it's just a great fit.  On a nice Pablo vinyl...

Howard Hanson "Romantic Symphony"  #2
Eastman Rochester Orchestra, Hanson conducting 
Mercury Golden Imports

My God, this just so stunningly beautiful... not particularly complex, powerful, or even great, but just shear melodic, romantic beauty.  This is like a real love affair with a woman, not some infatuation of a teenager, but a deep and mature expression of a joyously contented soul. 
The main theme of the "Romantic" is something that can bring goosebumps.
I've got the original Mercury, but this is one those instances where the repressing is simply better, and honestly, I find that to be the rule rather than the exception with the Dutch repressing on Mercury Golden Imports.  I think it's simply better vinyl than the old U.S. Mercurys of the 50's and 60's
These aren't particularly expensive, so if you don't have one, go find one.

Oohhh,  I don't have that version... time to go to Discogs    Every piano lover is a fan of Janis.  Such a shame that his career was cut short by arthritis.

And I guess I still won't have a copy.   $$$$ :shock:
