"Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consists principally in dealing with men." - Joseph Conrad
From the jazz album Tatum / Hampton / Rich Trio
The song was composed by Cole Porter. He claimed that “What Is This Thing Called Love?” with its innovative alternating major and minor key changes, was inspired by a Moroccan native dance.

Arthur Tatum Jr. (/ˈteɪtəm/, October 13, 1909 – November 5, 1956) was an American jazz pianist who is widely regarded as one of the greatest in his field. From early in his career, Tatum's technical ability was regarded by fellow musicians as extraordinary. Many pianists attempted to copy him; others questioned their own skills after encountering him, and some even switched instruments in response. In addition to being acclaimed for his virtuoso technique, Tatum extended the vocabulary and boundaries of jazz piano, and established new ground in jazz through innovative use of reharmonization, voicing, and bitonality.

As much as possible, I attempted to remove most of the pops and crackles from the original vinyl album. I also remastered the sound to be able to compete with most current preferences for listening to modern music.
Hope you enjoy.
