The album displays Jamals noted use of space and time as well as the trios 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 Jamals The death of ISRAEL CROSBY in August 1962 put an end to the trio which however is still a reference for musicians and critics

Jamal was one of Miles Daviss favorite pianists and was a key influence on the trumpeters First Great Quintet featuring John Coltrane on tenor saxophone Red Garland on piano Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums Davis had long admired Jamals use of space and dynamics and had asked Wynton Kelly to sound more like Ahmad Jamal on the track Freddie Freeloader on the landmark album Kind of Blue
