Tatum persisted in playing over other players, and his pulse and his melodic and chromatic imagination were so strong that he buried weak players. But the great alto saxophonist Benny Carter wasn't a weak player, and his sense of time and melody jibed with Tatum's. Vol. 1 of the Pablo Records group sessions is a triumph, as a result. Listen especially to the opening number, an improvised blues, Blues in C. Tatum doesn't accompany like most pianists accompany. Rather, he solos along with the sax.

This first of eight volumes finds Tatum matching wits with the classy alto of Benny Carter and drummer Louie Bellson - the results are both tasteful and frequently hard-swinging.
