It's magic by Ahmad Jamal ( Recording )
8 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ce nouvel album d'Ahmad Jamal exprime la quintessence et toutes les facettes de son style, de son art du rythme et de la brisure, de son invention mélodique, comme il nous montre l'exceptionnelle cohésion de son trio, augmenté ici du percussionniste Manolo Badrena. Quel que soit le tempo, le grand pianiste de Pittsburgh qui aura 78 ans le 2 juillet, sur des compositions anciennes et nouvelles, réalise la synthèse entre un jeu plein d'espaces comme dans le célèbre album sur lequel figure Poincania et la profusion de phrases chantantes et jamais achevées des dernières années où la luxuriance de son jeu pianistique virevoltant manifestait une expression très extravertie. Ecoutez en particulier "Swahililand" et "Arabesque" et vous comprendrez pourquoi Miles Davis faisait de l'art du piano de Jamal une référence pour ses propres musiciens et pourquoi nous, mélomanes, nous écoutons avec ravissement et bonheur cette musique jubilatoire et belle qui exprime un désir de vie immense."It's magic"!
