Ahmad Jamal: Happy Moods

Happy Moods is an album by American jazz pianist Ahmad Jamal featuring performances recorded in 1960 and released on the Argo label. I am sure my pal Joe will see this post and want to know more about the condition of the record.  And here is what we can read about him on wiki:  "Ahmad Jamal (born July 2, 1930 as Frederick Russell Jones) is an innovative and influential American jazz pianist, composer, and educator.  According to American music critic Stanley Crouch, Jamal ranks second in importance in the development of American jazz (after 1945) only to Charlie Parker.  For five decades, he has been one of the most successful small-group leaders in jazz."

  1. Original Argo pressings sound great, even in questionable condition!
