Complete Ahmad Jamal Trio Sessions


About The Video

Ahmad Jamal's recording as a piano trio leader on Argo, owned by Chicago's Chess recording label, began in 1956. And that's where Mosaic Record's new retrospective begins on The Complete Ahmad Jamal Trio Argo Sessions 1956-62.

The first definitive collection of his work from this seminal era of his career, it includes all the tunes for which Jamal became renowned, such as “Ahmad's Blues,” “Poinciana,” “But Not For Me,” and “Billy Boy,” a song so often re-done in Jamal's style that his version has almost become the new standard.
