Pittsburgh pianist Jamal, aka Fritz Jones, is best known for providing the sparse melodic template for Miles Davis (those brittle, jerky, modal improvisations with a big kick on the fourth beat) but you can also trace Hancock, Evans and Jarrett from his style. He can still swing like hell – his voracious improvising can pour forth a lifetime's worth of ideas in a single solo. He's accompanied by phenomenal bassist Reginald Veal, the steam-rollering power of drummer Herin Riley and percussionist Manolo Badrena.
