Ahmad Jamal in concert in Paris Paris fr

The great Jazz pianist will play at the Palais des Congrès in Paris on 14th November 2017. It is the perfect opportunity to get carried away by his inimitable playing style, and to explore his new album dedicated to Marseille.

Those who missed Ahmad Jamal’s visit to Marseille last summer for the Jazz des Cinq Continents Festival can catch up with him this autumn in Paris instead. This Jazz musician really loves France, and the feeling is mutual. He was already here in June for two concerts at the Opéra de Marseille to celebrate the launch of his eponymous album, before heading to the Théâtre Antique in Vienna.

Abd Al Malik and Mina Agossi were special guests then

He returns to France this autumn with an exceptional concert on 14th November at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. Abd Al Malik and Mina Agossi will be with him once more, and their vocals appear on Marseille, the very first vocal arrangement written by Ahmad Jamal in honour of his love for the Phocaean city. It is a brilliant album that provides another great moment of Jazz for those who are lucky enough to be in Paris on that date. His many fans are already on the starting-blocks... How about you?
