    Masterclass piano work. This and The Awakening are just brilliant!

      Ahmad Jamal was listed by the New York Times as an artist whose masters were affected by the 2008 Universal Studios warehouse fire- given that his 20th Century Records output has never been properly reissued it seems likely to me that the masters for this album as well as his others for the label were destroyed in the fire, along with any chance of a proper digital or analog reissue. Here's to hoping I'm wrong. The music is obviously incredible

            incredible music, of all his records this one grooves the hardest. i can't believe how hard to find this one is.
            'awakenings' was just reissued, let's hope 'jamal plays jamal' is not too far behind.

                Magnificent 1974 recording on 20th Century Records from the great pianist Ahmad Jamal with the other two members of his trio, Jamil Nasser on bass and Frank Gant on drums, along with Azzedin Weston in a VERY prominent role on congas, and a string and horn section arranged by Richard Evans. Produced by Jamal himself, all six selections on the album were written by him. "Jamal Plays Jamal" is a CLASSIC that has yet to be officially released on cd. It commands premium prices in the collector's market and has been sampled over the years by many other musicians.

                  any cds of this or digital version I can buy? Seems to be very little online, definitely not on youtube except 2 of the songs, entirely missing on spotify as well

                    Incredible album. One of my favorites from Jamal.
