Ahmad JAMAL Feat. George COLEMAN – 2000-10-26 Zurich
Jazznojazz Festival
Zürich (Switzerland), Theaterhaus Gessnerallee
October 26, 2000
Thx To *Ubu*


I was at this concert, and it was great! They did “Autumn Leaves” modelled after
the classic version on Cannonball’s “Something Else” as an encore. I stood right
in front of Coleman for most of the concert and enjoyed the sh*t out of it.
Jamal was in a rumbling mood… his style certainly changed a lot since his
classic 50s sides with Crosby/Fournier (still my favourite Jamal), and I must
say, I don’t like his current playing nearly as much – but at spots, his
brilliance is still there… Cammack provides solid support, but not much more,
but Muhammad is *great*! Earlier that night there were sets by Jacky Terrasson
with Leon Parker (I may have that, but I’m not sure) and Larry Goldings’ trio
with Bill Stewart (not broadcasted) – so it was sort of a “drummer’s night”, and
all the better!
Then after 3 tunes enters George Coleman… check it out yourself!
