AllMusic Review by

The three-disc collection The Legendary 1958 Pershing Lounge & Spotlite Club Performances compiles most of pianist Ahmad Jamal's influential early-career live recordings. Recorded during Jamal's residency in the lounge of the Pershing Hotel in Chicago, these performances include his seminal version of "Poinciana," which helped his 1958 album Ahmad Jamal at the Pershing: But Not for Me land on the Billboard charts for over two years. Also included are Jamal's performances from the Spotlite Club, once again showcasing his dynamic, classically influenced style of jazz.
