Ahmad Jamal - Chamber Music of the New Jazz 1955 (Parrot)
Label : Parrot
Beautiful work from Jamal's early Chicago years – and a perfectly titled
set that really gets at the differences he made in modern jazz!
tunes are wonderfully fluid, soulful, and swinging – but not in the
gutbuckety style of other trios of the time, more in a lightly modern
style that features almost equal interplay between Jamal's piano, the
bass of Israel Crosby, and the guitar of the wonderful Ray Crawford –
who really ads an amazing touch to the record.
