"No musician has had a more profound effect on the orchestral approach to small groups in the last 35 years than Ahmad Jamal." - The Village Voice  

Blue Moon is not just celebrated pianist-composer Ahmad Jamal's latest album (released in February 2012) it's his current masterpiece, suffused with a predominant feeling reminiscent of his greatest periods with Chess and Impulse! Records.
 
Original compositions, brilliant new interpretations of American legends (the "film noir", Broadway, the vast open spaces), each of these nine pieces showcases Jamal's creative reinvention of swing, provides a pretext for some breathtaking melodies and calls on sophisticated syncopations that will leave you gasping.

Accompanied by three impeccable guardians of the tempo ( Herlin Riley, drums -   Manolo Badrena, percussion — Reginald Veal, double bass ),   Ahmad Jamal is at the peak of his art. Formerly a highly talented pianist of a type of music known as jazz, he is now the chief apostle of American classical music.
