Text by Jérôme Badini - Les Légendes du Jazz - France Musique:

"While be-bop musicians practice one-upmanship in terms of speed, Ahmad Jamal develops a crystal-clear touch and praises silence: "I was an angel among devils !
The boppers made notes explode. I let them resonate until the end of their lives."

A reputation as an artist on the fringes perhaps explains this lack of fame he suffered at one time. But despite the great whirlwind that is his life, Ahmad Jamal declares that he is searching for peace: "The quest is that of musical and internal peace I cannot acknowledge that I am at peace, it would be dangerous to show it. A man at peace with himself doesn't say so.

If you cannot say it, you can hear it, especially during his first concert in Paris in a trio. Here we are transporting to the upper echelons of the art of the trio: the master of the piano, in studio 104 of Broadcasting House, is surrounded by brilliant accomplices, Jamil Nasser on double bass and Frank Gant on drums..."
