On the intro of “I’ll Never Stop Loving You” it sounds like Ahmad Jamal pulled out a third hand. One of my conflicts with a lot of Ahmad Jamal’s earlier recordings is that, in my opinion, they weren’t recorded very well—the engineering was not to my satisfaction and I thought the piano was inferior. But Ahmad Jamal completely killed that lion in terms of trying to fight with an instrument. He plays the piano with such perfect command and his musical conception was so clear that it wouldn’t have made a difference if he were playing on a toy piano.
