Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Remembering Jim Hall



Jim Hall, jazz guitar master known for his graceful, understated and fluent style, passed away on Tuesday. Above he is shown performing "My Funny Valentine" with Kenny Barron, piano; Scott Colley, bass; and Lewis Nash, drums, at the Marciac Jazz Festival, France, 2009. To hear a tribute to Jim Hall, listen to the St. James Infirmary music show, hosted by my good friend Michael Mand.

The list of his accomplishments and collaberations reads like a who's who of jazz. Once again, I became familiar with a musicain, whom I previously only knew by name, upon his passing. What I have learned is what I have missed. BTW, thanks again, for the plug.

My pleasure. Click on the link to the NY Times obituary and the list you reference is made clear.
