Wikipedia : This day (July 2, 1930 ), in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is born Ahmad Jamal, an American jazz pianist,.

Ahmad Jamal : The hallmarks of Mr. Jamal’s style are rhythmic innovations, colorful harmonic perceptions, especially left hand harmonic and melodic figures, plus parallel and contrary motion lines in and out of chordal substitutions and alterations and pedal point ostinato interludes in tasteful dynamics.

@allmusic : A sorely underexposed figure and a major influence on Miles Davis, Jamal isn’t generally ranked among the all-time giants of jazz, but he impressed fellow musicians and record buyers alike with his innovative, minimalist approach.

@last.fm : A child prodigy who began to play the piano at the age of three, he began formal studies at age seven. While in high school, he completed the equivalent of college master classes under the noted African-American concert singer and teacher Mary Cardwell Dawson and pianist James Miller.
