AllMusic Review by

The second of two LPs documenting the Ahmad Jamal Trio's recordings at Jamal's Chicago club (the Alhambra), this out-of-print set also has some of bassist Israel Crosby's last recordings with Jamal before his premature death in 1962. With drummer Vernell Fournier completing the group, Jamal's group had a personal sound of its own, often playing quietly and leaving space but never losing the passion. These versions of "Time on My Hands," "Star Eyes" and "All of You" in particular are well worth hearing.
