Jazz Session – 1971
Ahmad Jamal plays an inspired “Darn That Dream” in 1959.
Miles Davis said that pianist Ahmad Jamal had a huge influence on his own music. Trained in both jazz and classical music, Jamal is truly one of the great innovators of jazz piano.
Here’s a performance Miles might have seen when he made that comment.
