Description
Ahmad Jamal's subtle and sophisticated yet orchestral style has enticed listeners ever since his album, But Not For Me, outsold Dave Brubeck's Take 5 in the late '50s. Performed with a similar small group, his latest album mingles vigor and lyricism in Jamal's trademark manner, with tunes like "Back to the Future," "I'll Always Be With You," "Edith's Cake," "I'm in the Mood For Love," "Firefly," "Silver," "I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good," and "Saturday Morning."

"Jamal's distinctive style—melodies played on the piano's upper-most notes combined with elegant and brief midkeyboard chord clusters—had been revered by jazz musicians since his first recordings in 1951. Miles Davis so admired Mr. Jamal's lyrical, space-rich approach on … early recordings by the pianist that he recorded them virtually the same way. The trio's conversational approach also left a lasting impression on many pianists, including Oscar Peterson, Red Garland, Bill Evans, Phineas Newborn Jr. and Herbie Hancock."—Wall Street Journal

"The freshness with which he balances the cyclical and the spontaneous is remarkable. 'I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good' uses the intro from 'Take the A Train' in a typically mercurial treatment that's nonetheless respectful to Ellington; 'I'm in the Mood for Love' lets the tune out in gasps between thunderous chordal dances."—The Guardian
