Format: Audio CD
At this point Jamal is just starting his musical career. He has been recording for four years and is now only twenty-five years old. He is highly regarded by fellow musicians, like Dave Brubeck, and has the same agent as Louis Armstrong.

He has played in many of America's finest night clubs, from coast to coast, including our own Blue Note. Talking with Jamal on the eve of his recent departure for Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and then New York, one had the impression of talking to a large child, yet to someone far beyond simple innocence. At times he seems at once young and a century old. Soft-spoken, grave, calm, and ascetic who does not even smoke. He still has something of the elegant and precious about him that is not at all puritanical -- he talks with a light humor,but keeps about him quiet dignity and strength most impressive in this age which counts so heavily on the spectacular. His personality is reflected in his music, which in its clarity, calm and subtle joy, deserves to be called the chamber of contemporary jazz.

Track Listing:

New Rumba
Foggy Day
All Of You
It Ain't Necessarily So

Review:

This album is unusual in two ways. Because pianist Ahmad Jamal would soon become famous for his piano/bass/drums trios, it is often forgotten that, up until 1956, his group consisted of bassist Israel Crosby and guitarist Ray Crawford. Crawford's percussive hitting of his guitar would soon be utilized by Herb Ellis in Oscar Peterson's Trio.

Well, if you are not a jazz fan, stop reading...For you jazz lovers, this album is a taste of the creation of the modern trio. Although back then trio's were not always b/d/p, this is a classic trio. Ahmad has inspired monsters such as Jarrett and Mehldau, with his classic, smooth playing. This album sounds really old, but the classics never get old to me...

this is wonderful listening .. the selections, the way they are arranged .. the sounds .. WOW what a treat !!!

I started with one 33 1/3 lp years ago and after listening to it again some time ago decided I wanted more of the works of this great musician and so have started collecting other works by him.

This album had more impact on me than any other album ever done by anyone else. The album's title says it all - This is jazz as it is played in a very small chamber-style room. In a small chamber there is no need for loud aggressive sound because the chamber is the most intimate places of all for a performance and the listener feels like he is sitting in a comfortable chair right next to the piano, right next to the bass, right next to the guitar, so the communication between the musicians and the audience is totally clear and immediate because the instruments sounds like they are "right here next to me", Ahmad's choices of tunes gives the trio a magical continuity just like that well planned continuity of a symphony concert. The music here though is loving, very intelligent, and creative beyond measure all built on substantial songs. It is such fun to hear the trio play so "close to the listener".

tasteful, playful & bouncy is how i would describe this piano trio recording. anything recorded by ahmad jamal in the 50's or early 60's is worth owning. i rank him up there with my favortie jazz pianists, including, of course, bill evans and thelonius monk. great sunday afternoon or early evening listening is the pigeonhole i place this album in at home. enjoyable beginning to end.
