Jim Hall

A harmonically advanced cool-toned and subtle guitarist, Jim Hall was an inspiration to many guitarists, including some (such as Bill Frisell) who sound nothing like him. Hall attended the Cleveland Institute of Music and studied classical guitar in Los Angeles with Vicente Gómez. He was an original member of the Chico Hamilton Quintet (1955-1956), and during 1956-1959 was with the Jimmy Giuffre Three. After touring with Ella Fitzgerald (1960-1961) and sometimes forming duos with Lee Konitz, Hall was with Sonny Rollins' dynamic quartet in 1961-1962, recording The Bridge. He co-led a quartet with Art Farmer (1962-1964), recorded on an occasional basis with Paul Desmond during 1959-1965 (all of their quartet performances are collected on a Mosaic box set), and then became a New York studio musician. He was mostly a leader during the following years and, in addition to his own projects for World Pacific/Pacific Jazz, MPS, Milestone, CTI, Horizon, Artist House, Concord, MusicMasters, and Telarc, Jim Hall recorded two classic duet albums with Bill Evans. A self-titled collaboration with Pat Metheny followed in 1999. A flurry of studio albums, reissues, and compilations followed throughout the next few years, with the exceptional Jim Hall & Basses standing out for its bass/guitar duet format. Jim Hall died at his apartment in Manhattan on December 10, 2013; he was 83 years old. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Jazz is dying and we need to find a way to have a resurgence. Cooperate Record Companies are dumbing up people with crap music. Thanks Jim for giving us such a wonderful feeling!!
Thanks for the music Jim. RIP
RIP Mr Hall- your music will live on with us forever
Instantly recognizable style and flawless tone, great imaginative technically skillful playing, that's Jim Hall. What more can you ask for in a guitar player?

Sometimes I did not know how he kept it so tamped down. I was ready a couple times for a little jamming. But was not disappointed with his mellow take on things. Beautiful really.
There are certain tunes that touch the soul, the spirit. Cocierto De Aranjuez is one of those select few. It takes you places deep within. I feel at one when listening to it, but saddened when I hear those last refrains. And when it finishes, I always seem to find myself letting out a deep sigh.

Great music
How relaxing . Gets me away from the day_to-day
First heard this back in the 70s & was hynotized, one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard! still love it, still blows my mind & still hypnotizes me!!
Real smooth transitions
The king of chill!

Discovered Jim Hall when I was in school in Cambridge, MA decades ago...he blew my mind then, and continues to do so. He is simply among the best ever.
Discovered Jim Hall in my dorm to help sooth me while cramming for a test. Sounds very interesting!

Thank you Jim Hall. Concerto de Aranjuez is a musical Masterpiece! Each solo is a wondrous piece of music, it washes over mind, body and soul.
nice tune with bill frisell, i can tell where pat metheny gets his influence.
Discovered Jim Hall in 1976 and have been an enduring fan ever since. Was driving in the car when Concierto was played by a local jazz station and had to pull off the road to listen. The whole album is a joy! All players are inspired in their solos...just love it!
Great solos on Concierto, "You'd be so nice to come to" Trombone has a nice counterpoint to artists soloing simaltaneous l y .
Hall's "Concerto de Aranjuez" is way good. I've got Miles Davis' rendition in "Sketches of Spain" and thought it was as good as it gets, Hall's version is at least the equal.
Jim Hall is THE guitar player. Pat Metheny seems to be his successor, same aesthetic, same harmonic and melodic inventivenes s . And the one and only Paul Desmond ("the sound of a dry martini") makes this cut exquisite! Five zillion stars! If I had the jazz genie grant me only one wish, it would be more my own quartet to sound like this!
There are pioneers: Bill Evans, Miles, Coltrane, Charlie Haden. Jim Hall is one of those!

WOOOOWWWWW
Jim is the greatest. His music has been the inspiration for my own playing and has gotten me through some tough times. I've never had a chance to hear him live, but hope to someday.

Remarkable artistry -- Jim Hall and Bill Evans are about as good as jazz music gets. The selection of the last 10-15 tracks today (from Jimmy Bruno to Joey DeFrancesco Live and to Jim Hall) today has been just perfect.
