Tribute to the late, great Ahmad Jamal | May 19, 2023

Ahmad Jamal Piano Eyes

The 92 year old pianist died on April 16th, so as a tribute to him and his music I am repeating my show from November in which I did a brief profile of him.

In addition to Ahmad Jamal, I am featuring a few different versions of the song "Old Devil Moon."
The song is from the 1947 play, "Finian's Rainbow." And here is a magical video of the amazing Josh Groban singing it accompanied by young trumpeter, Josh Shpak. This one really moved me...

And here's the playlist for the show:
