La Liga de Las Americas


It’s a birthday celebration for the late legendary jazz pianist Art Tatum scheduled from noon to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2007 at the Kent Branch Library, 3101 Collingwood Boulevard.  The Kent Branch houses the Art Tatum African American Resource Center.

Despite being blind in one eye and only partially sighted in the other, Art Tatum, who was born in 1909 in Toledo, Ohio, became arguably one of the greatest jazz piano players who ever lived.  His work has been noted to have a great impact on the world of jazz music. 

Tatum died in 1956 and would have been 98-years-old this year.  Jazz musicians, historians, and institutions around the world are planning 100th birthday events for Tatum in 2009, including the Kent Branch Library and the Art Tatum African American Resource Center.

Kent’s upcoming festivities will include games, music, speakers, and cake and ice cream.   Participants will also sing “Happy Birthday” in honor of Mr. Tatum.   This celebration is gratis.

For more details and to RSVP, call Melissa Jeter at 419.259.5392.
