Ahmad Jamal receives a standing ovation at his first Indian Performance!

Jamal and his accompanist performed to a packed Chowdiah Hall, a stunning performance from the very first note to the standing ovation they received.
Ahmad Jamal has been praised as one of the greatest jazz innovators over his exceptionally long career. His unique musical style stemmed from many individual characteristics, including his use of orchestral effects and his ability to control the beat of songs. He is frequently credited with having a great influence on Miles Davis. Davis is quoted as saying that he was impressed by Jamal’s rhythmic sense and his “concept of space, his lightness of touch, his understatement…” Jamal characterizes what he thought Davis admired about his music as: “my discipline as opposed to my space.”
For all those present at the Ahmad Jamal concert, you have Kamal Sagar to thank – the architect convinced the American piano legend to make a trip to India. City-based builder-architect Kamal Sagar went through great lengths for the first visit of American jazz musician Ahmad Jamal to India.
A Steinway Model D 9ft grand piano was trucked from Mumbai and it was tuned by Steve Droy, the No 1 tuner in India.
Acoustic Control, was honoured to be the company of choice to be chosen to provide the Sound and Lighting system for the Ahmed Jamal Concert in Bangalore.
Sagar was insistent that we provide Ahmad Jamal with the Best equipment!
We deployed a JBL Vertec PA System with JBL monitors and Crown amplifiers. The Console was a Soundcraft Vi. We deployed Martin MAC Vipers to add Punch to the stage lighting without distracting the audience from the main performance, the lighting had to be subtle yet step up the level of an Ahmed Jamal performance. Rzhude David from Kamal Sagar’s team put the entire production together and ensured it was flawless.
Thank you Ahmad Jamal for a night to remember!
