Following on from the sensational album Blue Moon, Ahmad Jamal and his dream team are back with a joyful album made up of the kind of ballads to which only he holds the key. Each one is a moment of grace, shining like a star in the sky of American Classical Music -- it also features one wonderful Duke Ellington cover and a tribute to Horace Silver. With his light-fingered but rhythmic style, he sends us into a sensuous trance and leads us to a musical climax: a sound, which is pure groove.

"...Saturday Morning could almost be part of the same sessions that produced Blue Moon with its mixture of standards, new compositions and reworked older material. Like Blue Moon, this recording occasionally evokes his classic 1950s Argo years, only there's more meat on Jamal's arrangements these days, and remarkably, greater fire in his fingers...

"Jamal proves once again that he's lost none of his customary elegance or electricity. His expansive imagination as an interpreter of standards--particularly ballads--remains almost unmatched. The four musicians sound fully molded to each other contours and the result is music that is fantastically tight yet exhilarating. Jamal is still minting great melodies, still blazing his own trail and--for many--still leading the way." - allaboutjazz.com

Recorded at La Buissonne Studios, Pernes-les-Fontaines (France). Mixed on RMG900 analogue tape on a Studer A80 1/2-inch tape recorder.
