Ahmad Jamal – Sumayah

The first post of quite a while! Greetings to all, and happy 2017. Let’s hope this year is better than 2016!

This transcription is from a now out of print album ‘One’ pressed by 20th Century Fox records in 1978. Many of the tracks are highly arranged affairs with alot of musicians (latin percussion features alot). However this tracks is just a solo piano Improvisation by Ahmad.

There’s some fairly heavy playing in here, and its worth of a bit of study in terms of irregular harmony and use of time. Enjoy!
