SOURCE: Published: 2012-01-31
Ahmad Jamal Since its inception, All About Jazz has delivered exhaustive coverage with some of the most extensive, in-depth interviews anywhere. AAJ will continue to provide the same degree of feature-rich coverage (e.g. Jack DeJohnette Week), but for those artists who have already received the “in-depth" treatment, our new Catching Up With column will allow us to revisit them while focusing primarily on recent topics.

AAJ Senior Editor Chris May kicks off the new column with Catching Up With Ahmad Jamal, where the legendary pianist talks about his latest recording, Blue Moon (Jazz Village, 2012)—and answers a question about trumpeter Miles Davis
