Jazz Session – 1971

Ahmad Jamal

Miles’ Favorite

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.

Personnel:

Ahmad Jamal, piano
Israel Crosby, bass
Vernel Fournier, drums
