Art Tatum discography and sessionography

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is a complete Art Tatum discography and/or sessionography somewhere around the net or in print?

The Solo Masterpieces CD's are listed at French Amazon as released in October 2007. Are these new remasterings?

The original releases seems to have been from 1990.

Don't think there is any worthy Tatum discography on the net.

There was one discography (by Laubich and Ray Spencer) but I am afraid it's not available any more.

Doubt The Solo Masterpieces are new masterings. I'ld say they are straigth rereleases of the Pablo reissues.

Got the Laubich/Spencer many moons ago. It's a very thorough work... though please note it dates from 1982, and hence it's not updated anymore. A couple of years ago I took the time to cross-check it with the discographical information from the Live Tatum series from Storyville, and IIRC there was some material not listed in Laubich/Spencer. And no CD listings, of course.

You still can find it reasonably priced second-hand in some internet stores:

Bookfinder search

No online discography, to my knowledge.

And I am with brownie regarding the possible new remastering for the Solo Masterpieces boxed set. I bet no new remastering has been used.

I'm sure this is the old product reintroduced to the market by the new owner/distributor (Concord).

The most complete discography I could find seems to be over at allmusic: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&a...iftxqy5ldse~T21

Could have loved to see a sessionography too. Thanks for the link to the Laubich book, I will check that out.

Does anyone know what session is on this one?

That Jazzz lp contains the first eleven titles of Storyville's "Complete Jazz Chronicle Solo Session". The same material was issued on lp by the French label Jazz Anthology.

Concord is reusing the 1990 Phil Delance mastering for their Tatum series reissues.

So is that reprocessed stereo or do they have the mono tapes?

I have both the solo and group boxes - after reading somewhere that they partly used the faked stereo tapes I listened to some on headphones, but it all sounds like mono to me - the liner notes also say that mono master tapes were used.
