Ahmad Jamal: Saturday Morning
Label: Jazz Village
Following on from the worldwide success of his album Blue Moon, the great Ahmad Jamal and his dream team are back with Saturday Morning - another instant classic made up of the kinds of ballads to which only Jamal holds the key. Every track is a moment of grace, shining like a star in the sky of American Classical Music. The album features a wonderful Duke Ellington cover and a tribute to Horace Silver. With his light-fingered but rhythmic style, Jamal sends us into a sensuous trance and leads us to a musical climax: a sound that is 100% pure groove.
