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"!

Blue moon the New York session by Ahmad Jamal ( Recording )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Blue Moon n'est pas juste le nouvel album d'Ahmad Jamal. C'est son nouveau chef-d'oeuvre, irrigué par une émotion qui nous rappelle ses plus grandes heures, celles de Chess et d'Impulse! Trois compositions originales majestueuses (Autumn Rain, I Remember Italy, Morning Mist), brillantes relectures des mythes américains, le film noir (Laura), Broadway (Invitation, This Is The Life), la chanson populaire (Gypsy), la grande histoire du jazz bien sûr (Woody'n You), et ce Blue Moon à l'intensité bouleversante et qui est à lui seul un résumé du nouveau monde, puisqu'il a été chanté par Bill Monroe, Elvis Presley, et Mel Tormé - pour ne citer qu'eux. Chacun des neuf morceaux est un hommage aux grands espaces, une réinvention du swing, un prétexte à des vertiges mélodiques, un appel vers des syncopes rythmiques à vous couper le souffle. Entouré de trois gardiens du tempo hors pair, Ahmad Jamal est au sommet de son art ; naguère pianiste virtuose d'un genre nommé jazz, il est désormais l'apôtre en chef de la musique classique américaine
