But Not For Me – Ahmad Jamal Trio At The Pershing

LP (Item 30962) Argo, 1958 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Groundbreaking work from the legendary Ahmad Jamal – not just in his own career, but in live jazz in general! The album's a classic recording of Jamal's trio with Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums – captured at the Pershing Lounge on the south side of Chicago, where Jamal was clearly wowing the crowd with his amazing talents on the piano. The groove here is sublimely fluid and soulful – clearly the next wave of expression on the piano in the 50s, and as important to the Chicago scene as Bill Evans was to that of New York at the time. The recording quality is wonderful – clear enough to capture the subtleties of Crosby's amazing bass, and the lightly tippling sound of Fournier's drums – and titles include a classic extended reading of "Poinciana", plus "What's New", "But Not For Me", and "No Greater Love". (Black label Argo pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some wear, aging, wrinkling on the front, a partially split top seam, and a split bottom seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
