ONE OF THE FINEST JAZZ TRIO PERFORMANCES
IN A COMPLETE SINGLE SET FOR THE FIRST TIME!

The 1958 Pershing and Spotlite performances marked the turning point in Ahmad Jamal’s career, even though they were not the pianist’s first recordings. The Spotlite material, recorded at a concert in Washington on September 5 & 6, 1958, was issued in many different (always partial) forms over the years. This edition contains all of the known material from the Spotlite performances plus three rare studio tracks from the same period.
