Pianist Art Tatum got great reviews this month. Or maybe they go to Zenph Sound Innovations.

A show at the Progress Energy Center in Raleigh featured Zenph’s production of Tatum’s playing and was based on the startup’s piano driven by software created from a detailed analysis of Tatum’s playing.

Called “Piano Starts Here,” the show celebrated the life and music of the legendary jazz pianist, who died in 1956. To create the “live”performance, Zenph analyzed Tatum recordings to extract the nuances that made his playing different from anyone else’s playing his music.

Zenph calls it Reperformances.

Capitol Broadcasting Co., parent of WRAL.com and Local Tech Wire is an investor in Zenph.
