By 1970, pianist Ahmad Jamal’s style had changed a bit since the 1950s, becoming denser and more adventurous while still retaining his musical identity. With bassist Jamil Nasser (whose double-timing lines are sometimes furious) and drummer Frank Gant, Jamal performs two originals (playing over a vamp on “Patterns”), the obscure “I Love Music,” and four jazz standards. These are intriguing performances showing that Ahmad Jamal was continuing to evolve.
