Erik said...

Mmmm...thanks. I'm listening to the first track right. Sounds cool. The guitar sounds almost as if it's lined though. A bit strange.

How amazing to come across a Jamal LP I'd never heard of from his post-Impulse! career, the least documented point in his discography. I don't know of *any* Jamal recordings between this one and Live at Bubba's (1981). Anyone else have any info?

Also very cool to see him playing with a guitarist, a very rare departure from the straight trio format.

If you've never seen him live, it's worth your money--he's stil astonishingly good!

A huge thanx for sharing your excellent collection, it is music that truly deserves to be heard and you've made so many people happy.

Like some others, I'm having tonsn of troulbe with lix and wonder if you have rapidshares for this Ahmad Jamal and Pharoah Sanders "Love in Us All", like you did for "Village of the Pharoahs" ?

Thanx again,
