Art Tatum had recorded a lot of playing in solo performances and his trio performances.
Today I heard a valuable record that Art Tatum participated in the all star jam session.
Esquire Magazine selected ”The All American Band” in 1944.

The band was made up of Armstrong and Roy Eldridge, trumpets; Barney Bigard, clarinet; Sidney Catlett, drums; Al Casey, guitar; Coleman Hawkins, sax; Oscar Pettiford, bass; Art Tatum, piano; Red Norvo, xylophone; Lionel Hampton, vibraharp, and Jack Teagarden, trombone.
They were gathered at the the Metropolitan Opera House in January 18.
The concert was broadcast on NBC Blue network and around the world on Armed Forces Radio.

The day before yesterday, one photo has arrived from my old friend.
He told me that he wanted me to check “Where was it shot” and “Who the source of the image is”.
Unfortunately there was no information other than “Art Tatum at Jazz City, Hollywood”.
If you have information on the details of the photo, please contact me.
So please listen to the performance of Art Tatum from the Jazz at the Hollywood Bowl.
This recording became his last performance, and three months later on November 5 he died.
In addition, this recording date (August 15) was Oscar Peterson’s birthday.
