This show is big and there’s hardly a place in Atlantic City along the beach that won’t give you a great view of the planes screaming overhead. The beaches and boardwalk are likely to be jam-packed with people.

Art Tatum King of Stride Piano

Stephanie Trick is keeping stride alive.

Have you ever noticed that not many musicians have recorded tributes to pianist Art Tatum? The reason for that is pretty simple: Nobody but nobody can play like Art Tatum. In fact, there’s an often-told story about the night Tatum entered a club where Fats Waller was playing. Waller immediately got up from the piano to allow Tatum to play, saying, “I only play the piano. Tonight, God is in the house.” Tatum’s technical facility and gift for lightning-fast improvisations are unequaled. In this version of “Tea for Two,” you can hear what stride piano sounds like in a group configuration. After a solo opening from Tatum, he’s joined by bassist Slam Stewart and guitarist Everett Barksdale. All three players get solo spotlights, and their interplay — especially between Tatum and Barksdale — is awe-inspiring.

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by executive editor Glen Ford

New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christy “must have reasoned that nobody important would stand in the way of whatever he wanted to do to Atlantic City.” He’s stolen the residents right to vote, and is preparing to privatize the fire department. But top Democrats want to privatize the city’s water, too – and the local United-HERE union leader agrees. Black, Latino and poor people have no rights – and few allies – in corporate-ruled America.
