Ahmad Jamal essential recording
One of the greatest trio’s ever. Jamal’s minimalist approach to jazz piano is cool jazz, Miles Davis cites Jamal as a major influence in his “Kind Of Blue” album. Israel Crosby an underrated bass player and drummer Vernell Fournier round out the trio. This is what a tight combo playing un-self-conscious jazz sounds like.
Cross Country Tour 1958-1961 Live
This is what a “Live” jazz set is like. Very close to Bill Evans Complete Village Vanguard 1961 recording. This music puts you there!! A must hear and own.
