Dorothy Donegan was a virtuoso pianist who dazzled fellow players while she made the rounds with Art Tatum. Whether in the studio or on-stage, Donegan never hesitated to show off her chops, though her abrasive personality may have contributed to a lack of recognition until late in her career. These recordings were made in 1979 for Black & Blue in France, showcasing her exclusively as a solo pianist. She demonstrates her stride chops in a wailing "Lullaby in Rhythm," while her inventive bassline and unusual rhythmic approach to "You Go to My Head" is dazzling. Not just an interpreter of standards, her remarkable arrangement of the Beatles' "Yesterday" gives it a gospel flavor, while incorporating the blues as well.
