Recap: An Interview with Ahmad Jamal

Living legend, Ahmad Jamal, is arguably one of the greatest pianists in jazz history. Having been on the scene since the 1950’s, Jamal answers questions about Miles Davis, his hometown of Pittsburgh, and his new quartet. Known for his use of space and time, Jamal’s work is minimalistic and a boundary-pushing approach to modern jazz. A well-seasoned musician, he seems to be getting more adventurous with every critically-acclaimed new album released.
