Ahmad Jamal Cross Country 1958 - 1961 CD

Have been a long time admirer of Ahmad Jamal and when Chess reissued his 1958 to 1961 live recordings on a two CD format I was skeptical. I only have about 15 CDs out of hundreds that I deem acceptable. With that being said I can whole heartedly recommend this CD twofer. No doubt Orrin Keepnews had a lot to do with this transfer to CD and this is one of the best analog to CD transfers I have heard in a very longtime. This now allows me to preserve my vinyl editions for critical listening.

This is Chess reissue 0001 titled Ahmad Jamal Trio Cross Country Tour 1958 - 1961. Excellent liner booklet as well.
I agree. The local jazz station, KCSM-FM, had this CD as one of their pledge gifts a few years ago. It has surprisingly good sound.
