Ahmad Jamal - Live at the Pershing - But Not For Me
Original Release Date: January 16, 1958
Audio CD: October 17, 1990
Label: Mca
Bitrate: 320 kbps

A perfect introduction to the influential piano Ahmad Jamal;
This live classic was recorded in January of 1958 at Chicago's Pershing Club. The Ahmad Jamal trio featured Jamal on piano, Israel Crosby on bass, and

Vernell Fournier on drums. Jamal's piano is in top shape as he alternates nimble runs and artfully voiced chording with dramatic use of space. Fournier

manages to color his tight brushwork with skill and precision and is locked in tight with Crosby's round warm bass. The album is consistantly enjoyable,

featuring a perfect blend of uptempo and slow numbers highlighted by the classic take on "Poinciana". The total playing time is quite brief at just over thirty

minutes, but it's exceptional content is an argument for quality over quantity. Highly recommended. ~ "jazzfanmn"

Say all you want about Ahmad's use of silence and "space," his defining quality is, above all, discipline. Whereas the conventional approach is to play the

head in 2/4 after which the rhythm section is unleashed in 4/4 while the soloist rips through a chord sequence, Ahmad is reluctant to leave either the song or

the two-beat feel of the opening chorus. Instead, he comes back to the original melody again and again, converting it into a "riff" with slight alterations for

every subsequent chorus. And when he does release the rhythm section or improvise for a whole chorus over a walking bass line, the effect is explosive.

Numerous musicians have used the device of riff-like repetition (listen to Paul Gonsalves' celebrated solo on "Ellington at Newport" ), but few do so with as

much respect for the original melody and close attention to the finest details of construction and contouring as Jamal. For him a song is not merely a chord

sequence for improvisation but a tone poem or even miniature symphony awaiting the artist's realization through imaginative revisioning. And his "touch"

is inimitable, as pianists who have copied his every chorus with less success (listen to Michel Camilo's attempt to play Ahmad's version of "Poinciana" )

have discovered.

In short, Ahmad is that enviable and rare oxymoron, the "popular" artist. He serves up all the melody a jazz-challenged listener could ask for while satisfying

the artistic demands of the fastidious jazz-piano aficioniano. If the guy has never regained the popularity he enjoyed with "But Not for Me," the fault is not

his but that of a public that's lost touch with the supreme melodies that comprise the American Songbook. ~ Samuel Chell
