Illinois JacquetKing! ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A bit of a mad LP for Jacquet – ostensibly trad on the outside, but with some weird little elements once you give it a closer listen. The lineup is conventional enough – with players that include Joe Newman, Milt Buckner, Billy Butler, Jo Jones, and Montego Joe – but it's the way ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Beautiful work from Jamal's early Chicago years – and a perfectly titled set that really gets at the differences he made in modern jazz!

New Ahmad JamalFreeflight ... LP
Impulse, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant work by Jamal – and one of his first albums to feature electric piano! The mode of the tracks is in that "stretching out" style he was using as the 60s came to a close – a bit inspired by McCoy Tyner, but more an exploration of the lyricism of his earlier work, set ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1960. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A sprightly set from the Ahmad Jamal Trio – but also a record that's not as brightly colored as you might guess from the title, thanks to a nice undercurrent of darkness in the mix!

New Ahmad JamalPoinciana ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
The tune "Poinciana" must have been written by Jamal – as the lyrical flowing style of the song is perfect for his deeply soulful piano style.
