This release presents the complete original LP Art Tatum-Roy Eldridge Quartet (Clef MG C-679), pairing the two stars with bassist John Simmons and drummer Alvin Stoller. This was to be the last recorded reunion of the two leaders as Tatum died the following year. As a bonus to the eight tracks on the original album, the only two existing alternate takes from these sessions have been added. Also included are solo piano versions of all of the songs included on the quartet session with Eldridge (Tatum recorded these solo piano tracks for Granz between 1953-1955, which have been organized here in the same song order as the quartet date).

Includes 20-page booklet

DOWN BEAT original review: ART TATUM-ROY ELDRIDGE QUARTET
“Roy plays with exciting intensity and the kind of whole-heart-and-body warmth that many of the younger trumpeters lack. As for Art, the depth and imaginative consistency of his conception over the years is a subject for debate, but not Art’s dazzling mastery of time and his inimitably personal and influential voice.” (Nat Hentoff)
