This live concert was released on a 1986 double album, Live at the Montreal Jazz Festival 1985. Pianist Ahmad Jamal and his quartet (which also includes bassist James Cammack, drummer Herlin Riley, and percussionist Selden Newton) dig into three originals, an obscurity, Jack DeJohnette’s “Ebony,” and a trio of jazz standards (including “Footprints”). This particular group is often reminiscent of Jamal’s trios of the ’50s, although with more modern bass playing and some denser piano than before.

Ahmad Jamal – piano
James Cammack – bass
