Legendary jazz pianist Art Tatum was just a teenager when he broke out as a musician in the 1920s, touring the country both as a solo act and as part of a trio. He continued performing until his tragic passing in 1956 at the age of 47. Held yearly to honor his memory, the University of Toledo’s Art Tatum Memorial Jazz Scholarship Concert is a highlight on the Glass City’s musical calendar. This year’s installment will feature a performance by guest artist Ellen Rowe, pianist, composer and Professor of Jazz and Contemporary Improvisation at the University of Michigan.
