✨✧ Ahmad JamalAhmad Jamal – The Ahmad Jamal Trio Volume IV ... LP
Argo, 1958. Very Good- ... $7.99
Magical early work from Ahmad Jamal – a scintillating blend of piano, percussion, and bass – with a sound that was incredibly fresh at the time, and which still sounds pretty much so to our ears! The album crackles with imagination and rhythm – really hitting on all burners without burning itself out – and showing that even in these early days, Jamal's approach was one that could be as striking as it was mellow. Bass is by the incredible Israel Crosby, and drums are by Vernell Fournier – and tracks include "Taboo", "The Girl Next Door", "Should I", "Secret Love", and "Squatty Roo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and aging, light stains, and some writing in pen on back.)

Ahmad JamalBut Not For Me – Ahmad Jamal Trio At The Pershing ... CD
Argo/Chess, 1958. Used ... $4.99
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".

A great double-length set from Amad Jamal – material originally issued on his 4th trio album for Argo, plus the even longer Portrait Of Ahmad Jamal – one of the first 2LP sets ever issued by the label! The double CDs set features tracks all recorded at the Spotlite Club in Washington, DC on September 5 and 6, 1958 – live material, but captured with crystal-clear sound, so that the nuances of the Jamal trio come through beautifully! The collection is magical early work from Ahmad Jamal – a scintillating blend of piano, percussion, and bass – with a sound that was incredibly fresh at the time, and which still sounds pretty much so to our ears! The album crackles with imagination and rhythm – really hitting on all burners without burning itself out – and showing that even in these early days, Jamal's approach was one that could be as striking as it was mellow.

Chess/Universal, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $7.99

The set features 2 CDs, with material recorded at the Pershing Lounge and Alhambra in Chicago, The Spotlite Club in Washington DC, and the Black Hawk in San Francisco. On the 2 CDs, you're getting a huge amount of material – 32 tracks that made up some of Jamal's best-selling albums of the early 60s, all recorded with the classic trio of Israel Crosby and Vernel Fournier. Titles include "Moonlight In Vermont", "Woody N You", "Poinciana", "Cherokee", "Tater Pie", "Billy Boy", "Snowfall", "Sweet & Lovely", and "Darn That Dream". CD

Ahmad JamalDigital Works ... CD
Atlantic, 1985. Used ... $5.99
A cheesy cover, but a pretty decent little record – not nearly as electric or dated as you might guess from the image on the front or the title! The premise is simple – as Ahmad's updating a number of the bigger tunes from his book of the 50s – not in terms of instrumentation, but through recording techniques – using the then-new digital format to get a supposedly cleaner sound and bolder tone out of his piano. Fortunately, there's little in the way of showing recording techniques to date the record – and although "digital", the sound of the record is never stiff or cold – and Jamal's performance is strong enough to make the whole thing sparkle, even if it was recorded with a paper cup and string! Titles include "Wave", "Poinciana", "But Not For Me", "Midnight Sun", "Footprints", and "One". CD

Ahmad JamalLegendary Okeh & Epic Recordings (Piano Scene Of Ahmad Jamal/Ahmad Jamal Trio) ... CD
Epic/Legacy, Early/Mid 50s. Used ... $6.99
The long-overdue reissue of some of Ahmad Jamal's first recordings – early sides for the Okeh and Columbia labels, all tunes that would go on to have a huge influence on the use of the piano in jazz! All tracks on the set were recorded in the early 50s with Jamal's great drumless trio that featured Ray Crawford on guitar and either Eddie Calhoun or Israel Crosby on bass – the latter of whom is tremendous here, working as a player who really helped set his instrument free from its traditional role in jazz. The trio's blend of guitar, bass, and piano is completely unique – extremely inventive at both a rhythmic and melodic level, as each instrument often fills both roles equally well – dancing around with an internal groove that emerges outwardly as an especially fluid approach to the tune. If you've never heard Jamal at his early best like this, the CD's gotta be one of the best places we can think of to start – as it features 21 titles in all, all beautifully remastered with impeccable sound that goes far beyond even our original albums! Titles include "Poinciana", "Black Beauty", "Something To Remember You By", "Pavanne", "Perfida", "Rica Pulpa", "Old Devil Moon", "Autumn Leaves", "Ahmad's Blues", and "Aki & Ukthay". CD

Ahmad JamalPoinciana ... CD
Argo/MCA, 1958. Used ... $4.99
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. It wasn't, though – although this recording of the tune has made it one of the biggest in Jamal's book from the time, a perpetual favorite that's a great example of his rich talents. The album also features a great version of "Autumn Leaves" that stretches for over 7 minutes – one of Jamal's first extended tunes on record – plus the cuts "Ivy", "Tater Pie", and "A Gal In Calico".

✨✧ Ahmad JamalAwakening ... LP
Impulse, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mindblowing album from Ahmad Jamal – a fantastic start to the 70s, and a set of music that shows just how far the pianist had come in just a few short years! The album's all acoustic, but has some of that spacious flow that Jamal would bring to his work on Fender Rhodes – with an approach that's even more open in terms of song structure than his earlier trio material – as if Jamal's choosing to omit more notes than he's including – but all with a quality that still keeps the music very full and rhythmic – pulsating with a special sort of energy that's neither Bill Evans, nor McCoy Tyner – but instead this really amazing sound that's all Ahmad's own. The trio features equally wonderful work from Jamil Nasser on bass and Frank Gant on drums – and titles include "The Awakening", "I Love Music", "Patterns", "Wave", and "Dolphin Dance".

A nice range of tracks from Ahmad, and one that really illustrates the diversity of styles he was using in the 70s. Some cuts feature acoustic piano, and others electric – but the best moments are those when the groove gets nice and funky, with that spacey expanded tip that was used to push Ahmad's style way past the cliches of the 60s. Titles include "Genetic Walk", "Chase", "La Costa", and "Don't Ask My Neighbors – all of which were arranged by Richard Evans, the latter two both nice covers! LP, Vinyl record album

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! Jamal's piano work is often nicely punctuated – perhaps living up to the "happy moods" promised on the cover – but the bass work of Israel Crosby and drums by Vernell Fournier are a lot more subtle – magical element that really makes the record sparkle with that unique Jamal-like approach to rhythm. Titles include "For All We Know", "Excerpt From The Blues", "Little Old Lady", "Pavanne", "Time On My Hands", "Raincheck", and "Rhumba No 2". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny Mandel/Ahmad JamalMASH ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very unusual little soundtrack – almost more of an audio documentary of the film than a record itself! Although Johnny Mandel's score for the movie was plenty darn great, there's very little of it here – because about 80% of the record features jokes and dialogue from the film by Elliot Gould, Donald Sutherland, and others. However, the album does start off with Ahmad Jamal's excellent Fender Rhodes version of "Mash" – subtly funky, and a wonderful groover that we love to death! Other musical moments are buried amidst the spoken bits. LP, Vinyl record album

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 to the new freedoms of the jazz record style of the time. The group features Jamal's regulars Jamil Nasser on bass and Frank Gant on drums – and Ahmad plays both electric and acoustic piano on the album. Tracks include "Dolphin Dance", "Effendi", "Manhattan Reflections", and "Poinciana". CD

Impulse, 1969/1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent Ahmad Jamal at Impulse – great albums from the late 60s & early 70s together in a single set! The "revisited" in the title refers to Ahmad Jamal's earlier success on Argo records with a recording of "Poinciana" – one that forever made the tune his, thanks to a long-flowing approach that took the familiar standard, and turned it into the perfect foil for Jamal's expressive piano style. This set features a beautiful 9 minute reworking of the tune – handled in a way that beautifully shows Jamal's growth during the 60s – plus other gems that include "Call Me", "Lament", "How Insensitive", and "Have You Met Miss Jones". Freeflight features more 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 to the new freedoms of the jazz record style of the time.

A hip west coast set from Ahmad Jamal – recorded up in British Columbia with a quintet lineup – all in a sound that's even more spacious and free-flowing than some of his Impulse albums from the same stretch! The group features the mighty Calvin Keys on guitar, plus John Heard on bass, Frank Gant on drums, and Seldon Newton on congas – and although Jamal only plays acoustic piano, there's a very open, soaring quality to the work that certainly shows his growing understanding of the Fender Rhodes, and how its approach might influence the sound of acoustic keys. All tracks are nice and long, and titles include "Effendi", "Poinciana", "Folklore", and "Bellows". CD

Impulse, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $25.99 29.98
A stunning collection of work from the legendary Impulse Records catalog – a double-length set that focuses on the most spiritual side of the label! Red, green, and black are often used together as the colors of righteousness – but the orange and black of Impulse has stood strong as the standard for hip, forward-thinking jazz for decades – especially given the label's legacy of late 60s/early 70s material that's featured here strongly! A different title for the set might be "John Coltrane & His Children" – as the set begins with a key work from Trane, then moves into all these other tracks that showcase the opening spiritual side of jazz as the 60s moved on. Titles include "Sister Mamie" by Yusef Lateef, "Just Us Blues" by Elvin Jones/Jimmy Garrison Sextet, "Garvey's Ghost" by Max Roach, "The Creator Has A Master Plan (edit)" by Pharoah Sanders, "The Rights Of All" by Oliver Nelson, "Freedom Dance" by Shirley Scott, "We Shall Overcome" by Charlie Haden, "Music Is The Healing Force Of The Universe" by Albert Ayler, "Lament" by Michael White, "Imani" by Dewey Redman, "Awakening" by Ahmad Jamal, "Blues For Brother George Jackson" by Archie Shepp, "Bismillahi Rrahmani Rrahim" by Marion Brown, "Blue Nile" by Alice Coltrane", and the cuts "Africa", "Alabama", "Reverend King", and "Up Gainst The Wall" by John Coltrane himself.

✨✧ Hampton HawesNorthern Windows Plus – Northern Windows/Playin In The Yard ... CD
Prestige, 1973/1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest recordings ever made by pianist Hampton Hawes – extremely different from most of his earlier sides, done with loads of cool 70s electric touches! The first album on this 2-in-1 set is the excellent live album Playin In The Yard – a killer session at Montreux in 1973, done with a light open-ended groove that's got a sweet mellow feel. The record is similar to some of Ahmad Jamal's best work from the same time – with a sound that's not exactly funk, but which features some killer work on Fender Rhodes – stretched out over long tunes with a tremendously soulful approach! Titles include "Double Trouble", "Pink Peaches", "De De", and "Stella By Starlight". Next up is the David Axelrod-assisted album Northern Windows – a sweet batch of funky cuts with arrangements and backings handled by Axe! The record really bubbles with the warm and soulful approach Axelrod was using at Fantasy – kind of a step off his stark modern sound at Capitol, but still done with just the right amount of space and appreciation of a funky rhythm. The great Carol Kaye is on bass, and Hawes plays some totally sweeeeeeeet electric keys on the set – really stretching out on tracks that include "Sierra Morena", "Go Down Moses", "Web", "Tune Axle Grease", and "C&H Sugar".

✨✧ John WrightNice N Tasty ... LP
Prestige, 1960. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very tasty stuff indeed – one of the few rare sessions cut for Prestige by Chicago pianist John Wright – a very soulful player who emerged from the Windy City at the end of the 60s! Wright's got a really fluid style here – one that nicely links some of the uptown class of Ahmad Jamal and Ramsey Lewis with some of the grittier, bluesier modes that had been coming from the south side for many years before! There's a sense of grace and poise here that goes way beyond simple soul jazz cliches – a sense of depth that's really great, even on the more blues-based numbers. The rest of the trio features Wendell Marshall on bass and JC Heard on drums – and titles include the Wright originals "Pie Face", "Yes I Know", "You Do It", and "The Wright Way" – plus versions of "Things Are Getting Better" and "Witchcraft".

Everybody Digs Bill Evans – or at least it certainly seems that way from the cover endorsements by Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, and Ahmad Jamal – but the real proof is in the record, and the set is a great one from Bill's classic years on Riverside! Evans is at the peak of his early powers here – working with a straightforward rhythm combo that features Sam Jones on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but still hitting those beautifully fluid, beautifully spacious lines that set his playing apart from most who'd come before him. Tracks include 3 solo numbers – "Lucky To Be Me", "Peace Piece", and the very short "Epilogue" – plus trio tracks "Night & Day", "Minority", "Tenderly", and "Oleo". LP, Vinyl record album

Jamal/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweetly funky little set from Sonny Stitt – one of his hippest albums ever, and a rare date cut for Ahmad Jamal's short-lived record label! The sound here is a great combination of the late 60s tone that Sonny forged on other east coast indies – and some of the hipper, more open rhythms he'd later hit on the Jazz Masters label in Detroit on his work with Eddie Russ – a sound that's quite unique, and which is a fair bit different than the funk-based Stitt dates for Prestige around the same time. Players here are quite unusual too – Herbie Hancock on piano, organ, and Fender Rhodes – plus Ted Sommer on vibes, and guitar by either Gene Bertoncini, Howard Collins, or John Pizzarelli – depending on the track. Rhythm is by Ron Carter on bass and Grady Tate on drums – and the arrangements by Dave Ward have a nicely fresh approach to soul jazz – one that really keeps things interesting throughout! Titles include "Sunny", "My Idea", "Jason's Blues", "Out Of This World", "Opus 1", "When Sonny Blows Blue", and "Mac Arthur Park". CD
