Editorial Reviews

American Music
A comprehensive discography, a superb artifactual portrait of the artist, that easily surmounts previous attempts to document the formidable Tatum legacy. By any standard the work is first rate.
Jazz Journal
If Tatum is your God then this has to be your bible. No serious Tatum collector can afford to be without it.
Choice
Recommended for music collections in college and university libraries, conservatory libraries, and public libraries with large collections of popular music.
Cadence Magazine
A superb effort...There is no doubt that this will become the standard Tatum reference of the future. Mozart has 'K' listings and now Tatum will have his 'L&S' listing.
CHOICE
Recommended for music collections in college and university libraries, conservatory libraries, and public libraries with large collections of popular music.
