Review

Review Text Though he was somewhat eclipsed by the shadows of Bill Evans and McCoy Tyner, Ahmad Jamal was one of the most tasteful and influential jazz pianists of the 1950s and '60s. His light, classically-influenced touch and his ear for gorgeous, chamber-like arrangements influenced many of his contemporaries (most notably Miles Davis), and these qualities can be heard even in Jamal's early recordings. Though not released until 1996, this very fine 15-track set brings together some live recordings from 1958. The set list comprises standards--"But Not for Me" and "Moonlight in Vermont" are both treated here--and songs from the bop back catalogue, like Dizzy Gillespie's "Woody 'N You." But while Jamal's song selection may seem traditional, his approach to the piano is utterly distinctive, and makes this collection of early live tracks a treat.
