Recorded in 2005
At three, Ahmad Jamal's Uncle Lawrence challenged him to watch and copy a melody he was playing on the piano.
Darned if the little fellow didn't do it.
Jamal grew up in the fantastically rich musical environment of Pittsburgh.
Here's a partial list he provided once of fellow “Pittsburghers"
Earl “Fatha” Hines
Joe Kennedy, Jr.
George Hudson (his orchestra was my first job away from home, I was 17 and just out of high school.)
I'd say Pittsburg deserves to be called a major jazz town with a progeny like this.
