This release contains the complete original LP The Greatest Piano of Them All (Verve MGV-8323), showcasing the brilliant pianist unaccompanied. This album, which includes original liner notes byOscar Peterson, was part of the marathon sessions jazz producer Norman Granz planned for Art Tatum, who at that time was seriously ill and neglected by record companies due to stylistic changes in the music industry. He would die on November 5, 1956 at the age of 47. As a bonus, seven tracks from the same session,
which were not included on the original LP.
