Ahmad Jamal Trio – Ahmad Jamal At The Pershing 200g – Mono – QRP$53.00
- Best-selling, highly-recommended jazz album, ranked No. 21 on Jazzwise’s list of 100 Jazz Albums That Shook The World!
- This is one of the best-selling jazz records ever. But among audiophiles, it may not be as well known as some of the other genre classics.
- Jazz pianist, composer, bandleader, Grammy-nominee, and Kennedy Center legend Ahmad Jamal has for five decades been one of the most successful small-group leaders in jazz and one of the genre’s all-time great pianists. His artisty, talent and creative abilities have thrilled audiences and been broadly proclaimed by musician and music lover alike. At The Pershing: But Not For Me is Jamal’s dazzling fountain of creative splendor in full flow.
- In 1956 Jamal’s new trio (with Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums) began a residency at Chicago’s Pershing Hotel, and two years later the group recorded At The Pershing: But Not For Me, which spent 108 weeks among the Top Ten best selling albums. Recorded on Jan. 16, 1958 at the Pershing Lounge in the hotel, each set played that night was recorded for a total of 43 tracks, eight of which were selected by Jamal for the album.
