Back To The Future, Ahmad Jamal

Ahmad Jamal

8:00 PM
Symphony Center Presents Jazz Series
Friday, October 10, 2014

NEA Jazz Master, recipient of the Kennedy Center’s Living Jazz Legend Award and member of Downbeat magazine’s Hall of Fame, Ahmad Jamal opens the 2014/15 SCP Jazz series. Jamal, who rose to fame in Chicago in the 1950s, has inspired virtually every notable pianist of succeeding generations and remains as innovative and unpredictable as ever. Miles Davis famously said, “All my inspiration comes from Ahmad Jamal.”

Pianist Ahmad Jamal has been largely defined by Chicago. Of his formative years here, he recalls, "Chicago was vibrant. We had so many clubs, it was unbelievable was what going on.” Read more at Sounds & Stories.
