Ahmad Jamal at Yoshi's

Ahmad Jamal is already in the groove before he ever sits at the piano. The melody may have already come and gone before the song starts. It is not always clear where he is going next, even to the musicians playing with him.

Some of the things that make Ahmad different are the things that make him one of my favorite jazz pianists. Throw in his minor harmonies and his groove potential to round out the package.

You can watch Ahmad conduct his trio this week at Yoshi's, Wednesday through Sunday.
