Ahmad Jamal Trio: Complete Live At The Pershing Lounge 1958 (CD: Phoenix Jazz)Ahmad Jamal Trio: Complete Live At The Pershing Lounge 1958 (CD: Phoenix Jazz)
These 1958 performances at Chicago's Pershing Lounge marked the beginning of Ahmad Jamal’s success. The original album “But Not For Me”, included eight of the 43 tunes played by the trio, which were carefully selected by the pianist himself.

Two years later, the album’s success tempted the original producers to release eleven more tunes (tracks 9-19), which were again selected under the supervision of Jamal’s attentive ears. It is believed that the unused material was put aside and subsequently lost. This CD brings together all known material plus a rare bonus track. (Discovery Records)

Ahmad Jamal: Live At Joe Segal's Jazz Showcase (CD: Telarc Jazz)Ahmad Jamal: Live At Joe Segal's Jazz Showcase (CD: Telarc Jazz)
For all its understated power, Ahmad Jamal's music can still achieve the grand gesture that sweeps together those myriad small details he has scattered along the way. On this weekend in Chicago, 1992, Jamal brought forth music as strong, as intricate, and as well-realized as any previously captured in his long career. Don't mistake that claim for hyperbole: on this disc, you'll hear the ageless Jamal at the top of his game. (Telarc Jazz)

Ahmad Jamal: I Remember Duke, Hoagy & Strayhorn (CD: Telarc Jazz)
Forging the same riveting improvisational intensity that's long made his music so electrifying, Ahmad Jamal radiates romanticism on this release. It is a powerfully fresh tribute to three great American composers who have influenced countless generations of musicians. Jamal's lyricism, awesome technique, and rich textural sound dominate this trio recording. (Telarc Jazz)

Ahmad Jamal: Saturday Morning (CD: Jazz Village)
Following on from the critical and commercial phenomenon that was (the Grammy-nominated) Blue Moon, Ahmad Jamal and his dream team are back with a joyful album made up of the kind of ballads to which only he holds the key. Each one is a moment of grace, shining like a star in the sky of American Classical Music. The album also features one wonderful Duke Ellington cover and a tribute to Horace Silver. With his light-fingered but rhythmic style, Jamal sends us into a sensuous trance and leads us to a musical climax: a sound which is pure groove.

Ahmad Jamal: Live In Marciac - August 5th 2014 (CD & DVD: Jazz Village)Ahmad Jamal: Live In Marciac - August 5th 2014 (CD & DVD: Jazz Village)
Picture Marciac, during a sultry evening in early August, 2014. Like every year, this little town in the Gers region has been turned into the worldwide capital of jazz for a month and under the marquee Ahmad Jamal is stepping out onto the stage with his three fellow musicians. This time, it’s the double bass player Reginald Veal’s turn to set the tempo with a marvellous new track, Sunday Afternoon, which prolongs the magic of the albums Blue Moon and Saturday Morning. The band is in great shape and seems more than ever to function by telepathy. Majestically, Ahmad Jamal bestows upon us a wonderful, intense shot of groove; aside his own compositions, which fill the playlist for most of his set, he gives a nod to Cole Porter and Horace Silver, who has just died and to whom he makes a double tribute, both playing his famous track Strollin' and dedicating a new piece, Silver, to him. The group sounds better than ever, and their pianist has reached the highest echelons of genius. The audience drinks it all in, as we all can today, thanks to this unmissable double album which is a feast both for our ears and our eyes. (Harmonia Mundi)
