Miles Davis was already a great admirer and fan of Ahmad Jamal. Over the decades, Ahmad Jamal's reputation has steadily risen, and Leonard Feather's reasoning in the line notes can still apply today: "For young people and newcomers, this album should serve as a delightful, if belated, awakening."

By 1970, pianist extraordinaire Ahmad Jamal's style had changed from the 1950s, becoming denser and more intense while still retaining its recognizability and characteristic elegance. Jamal's trio - bassist Jamil Nasser (whose double-timing lines are often fiery hot) and drummer Frank Gant delivered mesmerizing performances on this Impulse! album classic, proving that Jamal was constantly evolving.
