Ahmad Jamal: ‘Autumn Leaves’

Monday, 6 February 2023 — Jazz on the Tube

I just love Ahmad Jamal!! WB

Ahmad Jamal became a significant pianist in the early 1950s and he was still at the top in 2017 when he was 87.

Jamal’s “less-is-more” approach was a contrast to the dominant bebop style in his early days, his use of space and dynamics in his continuous close interaction with his sidemen remained a constant, and he continued to grow within his own individual style for decades.

On this intriguing and often-surprising version of “Autumn Leaves,” Jamal is joined by bassist James Cammack, drummer Herlin Riley, and percussionist Manolo Badrena
