Jazz Conversation: Ahmad Jamal with Darrell Grant
February 20, 2014 12:00 PM
NEA Jazz Master Ahmad Jamal is a living legend at the age of 83. Jamal is a soul survivor, who lived long enough to reap the benefits of his Olympian artistry – as evidence by his induction into the prestigious Order of the Arts and Letters by French Culture Minister Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres, who named him an Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2007. Jamal is joined by Portland’s pianist/composer Darrell Grant for a special For Portland Only Jazz Conversation.
