AllMusic Review by

Part of the Jazz Legends Jazz Giants series, The Incredible Tatum! 1933-1949 features a solid overview of pianist Art Tatum's recordings. An innovator and technical giant on his chosen instrument, Tatum -- often overlooked -- actually transcended the development of jazz from the stride style to swing and then bebop. Featuring remastered sound, extensive liner notes, and a track listing that hits on classic and lesser-known cuts, this is easily one of the best single-disc collections covering the most essential years in the pianist's career.
