Description by OLDIES.com:

Typically when an artist reworks his own original works, the results are dissappointing. This couldn't be further from the truth, however, when discussing Ahmad Jamal's 1987 release Crystal. With the help of Willie White on percussion, James Cammack on bass, and David Bowler on drums; this album scored a huge success with audiences reaching #11 on the Jazz Albums chart.

There are some magical moments on this quartet set featuring pianist Ahmad Jamal, bassist James Cammack, drummer David Bowles and percussionist Willie White. Jamal's control of dynamics and inventive use of space proved to be as effective as it had been when he first made his mark in the 1950s, although his chord voicings and general style had evolved. Jamal and his group perform ten of his originals with taste, swing and subtle surprises. ~ Scott Yanow
