Hall, Jim - San Francisco 1986 : 2 x CDs (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-EQ2CD 6011
“Described by Sonny Rollins as a forceful and sensitive player and by Pat Metheny as the father of modern jazz guitar, Jim Hall is an enigma. At first what you hear is a mild mannered, proficient guitarist, not too flash, always tasteful. Listen a little closer though and you find an experimentalist, a quiet revolutionary. Howard Roberts played faster, Joe Pass probably had more chord substitutions, but Jim seems to convey more personality with his clean, slightly muted tone, harp-like strumming and playful approach to rhythm.
Performed at the Great American Music Hall, San Francisco, April 15th, 1986 and broadcast by KSAN-FM this concert presents Hall's working trio with Akira Tana on drums and Steve LaSpina on bass. A 2CD Digipack set presented in superb fidelity with background notes and archival imagery.”

“Song In My Heart", "All The Things You Are", "Chelsea Bridge", from Disc 1 are just some of the highlights. Disc 2 has good things like "I Should Care", "Blue Monk>Hide & Seek", "Bottlenose Blues", and the theme from "MASH"--which isn't a pander to the audience--far from it. This arrangement is another real high point from this gig. There's also an unlisted tune at the end of Disc 2 titled "Aruba", which the trio played after the last listed track, "Waltz (reprise)".
The sound is very good/excellent. The discs snap into trays inside the tri-fold cardboard package which also has a slot for the booklet.”-Stuart Jefferson
