5. Whiteman was aptly named

He was called the King of Jazz, but most of his takes are really sweetened up. But we have to give him props because he did make jazz popular with a lot of people and his band had some of the greatest musicians of the time.

One of the things I like about the Tatum version is that Art plays it so lyrically. Usually Art is a Monster that plays more notes than there are on the keyboard. But here he takes his time and lets the melody lead.
