Adventurous 1970 Set on 180g Vinyl!
Transferred from Analog Tapes!
Pressed at Third Man in Detroit!

"By 1970, pianist Ahmad Jamal's style had changed a bit since the 1950s, becoming denser and more adventurous while still retaining his musical identity. With bassist Jamil Nasser (whose double-timing lines are sometimes furious) and drummer Frank Gant, Jamal performs two originals (playing over a vamp on "Patterns"), the obscure "I Love Music," and four jazz standards. These are intriguing performances showing that Ahmad Jamal was continuing to evolve." -Scott Yanow,, 4/5 stars

This Verve By Request Series features a remastered transfer on 180-gram vinyl, pressed at Third Man in Detroit.

An appropriately titled LP by Ahmad Jamal that, even with the pianist's tasteful restraint, has an air of spiritual longing that gushes forth from the music like a spring.
