The release in 1958 of the LP 'But Not For Me', recorded by the AHMAD JAMAL Trio during an engagement at the Pershing Hotel in Chicago, proved to be a turning point in Jamal's career. Almost overnight the trio was in national demand, and the record was one of the year's top selling albums. The album displays Jamal's noted use of space and time as well as the trio's extraordinary percussive meld of piano and rhythm section - all of which influenced no less than Miles Davis, who later covered several of the tunes here using ideas similar to Jamal's. The death of ISRAEL CROSBY in August 1962 put an end to the trio, which however is still a reference for musicians and critics.
