Ahmad Jamal: A Rap

Ahmad Jamal
Master of Time and Space
Showed Miles His place
Added the chase

To more is less
It's a jazzman's guess
What Bird would bless
Or such a mess

But Ahmad himself
Hs built a palace
Like Wynton Marsalis
And Duke before us

New and old
Molded and told
Context not cold
Composition bold

Ahmad Jamal
Master of Time and Space
This is no race
Jamal's in first place.

Visit Dreyfus Jazz.

Track Listing: In Search of... Momentum; should I; excerpts from I'll take the 20; whisperings; island fever; I've never been in love before; where are you; where are you now; you can see; I'll always be with you.
