Ahmad Jamal

SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2019

Venue Matthews Theatre

OVERVIEW

At age 88, this living legend of jazz makes his McCarter debut! His influence on the art of jazz improvisation is indisputable and stretches across generations, from the big-band era to bebop to cool jazz to electronic styles. He’s an NEA Jazz Master, the recipient of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and he’s still recording. His latest CD, Marseille, came out last year, but jazz fans will remember his theme song, Poinciana, from the 1958 release At the Pershing: But Not For Me, which put him on the map. These days, Jamal reserves his rare live appearances to “special occasions” – and McCarter is lucky enough to be one of them.
