ART TATUM TRIO, CHICAGO

A good deal of energetic call-and-response was stirred up on this site by my posting what was proposed as an authentic Art Tatum signature.  Reader Gary Pajer has generously shared with us his father’s postcard from the London House in Chicago, signed by the three members of a notable trio:

Gary’s father didn’t remember an exact date for this (he’s 89 now) but recalled that Tatum was very friendly and personable, his fingers “very fast.”  And he did recall having a wonderful time in Chicago!

Let’s add this one to the sometimes heated discussion of what Art’s signature looked like . . . with thanks to both Mr. Pajers — and to the Art Tatum Trio of yore!

  2. Tried to tell the person that presented the earlier signature that it wasn’t Art Tatum’s. If was Art’s father’s. Gary Pajer has the correct one.

  3. Wow!!! Would you sell this card?
