Ahmad Jamal is one of the many musicians whose passages in Marciac have always been met with enthusiasm. Not without reason. This is a magician of the piano, one whose style, made of rhythmic breaks, lightness and harmonic daring, is so original that he has attracted disciples. He was knighted by Miles Davis who held him to be his favorite pianist and familiar, especially since the 80s, a great popular success. Its developments waterlogged invention seem, at first, take on the fantasy of the moment. They fit reality into a larger design, almost architectural. Hence the extreme attention paid by his partners, bassist Reginald Veal and Herlin Riley, one of the best contemporary drummers of all styles. They are, with percussionist Manolo Badrena, artisans of a dynamic which the pianist remains the prime contractor, sometimes - often - compelling and disconcerting. It is this formation Marciac hosts tonight. -Jazzinmarciactv
