Emerald City Nights: Live at the Penthouse (1965-1966) brings forth a collection of previously unissued recordings of the iconic pianist Ahmad Jamal captured live at the hallowed Penthouse jazz club in Seattle, WA between 1965-1966 with trios featuring bassists Richard Evans and Jamil Nasser, and drummers Chuck Lampkin, Vernel Fournier and Frank Gant. Produced for release by “Jazz Detective” Zev Feldman and supervised by Ahmad Jamal himself, these recordings were transferred from the original tape reels and mastered for vinyl by the legendary Bernie Grundman.

The deluxe limited-edition 180-gram 2-LP sets include extensive booklets with rare photos by Don Bronstein, Chuck Stewart and others; essays by producer Zev Feldman, journalist Eugene Holley, Jr., radio DJ and original recording engineer Jim Wilke, and son of the Penthouse owner, Charlie Puzzo Jr.; and interviews with  Jon Batiste and Kenny Barron, plus producer Marshall Chess of Chess/Argo Records, and others..
