AHMAD JAMAL
Paris 1971 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Studio 104 de la Maison de la Radio, Paris, France; June 25, 1971. Very good satellite broadcast.

For five decades, American pianist, composer, bandleader, and educator Ahmad Jamal has been one of the most successful small-group leaders in jazz. In 1958, he released the live album, At the Pershing: But Not for Me, which stayed on the Ten Best-selling charts for 108 weeks. Ahmad’s recording of the well known song “Poinciana” was first released on this album. Clint Eastwood featured two recordings from Ahmad’s But Not For Me album - “Music, Music, Music” and “Poinciana” - in the 1995 movie The Bridges of Madison County. Ahmad is the main mentor of jazz piano virtuosa Hiromi Uehara. On June 25, 2019, The New York Times Magazine listed Ahmad Jamal among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire. - wikipedia

  4. Although the 50s-60s era is the most popular (and that music is great), this era (when he was recording for Impulse) does it for me because he really extended the tracks and his music reached a lot deeper. Many thanks.
