This historic double-disc set by the original Ahmad Jamal Trio captures their classic live performances as a group in their entirety on CD for the first time. Jamal owned the Alhambra Club in 1961 and of course, his own trio with bassist Israel Crosby and drummer Vernell Fournier was the house band.

Disc two contains the legendary Live at the Blackhawk performances also from 1961 in full as well,-again, for the very first time on CD. There are 14 performances on disc two. Notable Jamal renditions of standards, such as "Sweet and Lovely," "Time on My Hands," "Angel Eyes," "Falling in Love with Love," and "On Green Dolphin Street" are all here, making this the definitive Jamal of the early '60s, and easily his finest live offering. Sound is warm, spacious, and full, and the entire proceeding is beautifully assembled.
