This month we pay homage in memory of Jazz Legend, Pianist Ahmad Jamal. This interview at the Newport Jazz Festival in 2010 was my very first interview with a major artist! It was loads of fun to meet someone I had listened to and admired since I was a teen.  

In part 1 he talks about his latest CD “A Quiet Time” and the use of his own compositions.

In Part II Jamal gives advice to Jazz musicians as to how to survive in this current music business environment.  He also talks about his future plans for his music.
