More details

CD 8,22 €

This unprecedented edition contains two landmark sessions that have been gathering dust in the vaults for the last fifty years

- a 1957 interpretation of Gershwin's Porgy & Bess (Interlude)

and a 1959 session "High Fidelity" (Mercury) featuring the guitarist backing a front line of 4 flutes.

Both of these sets include the participation of the exquisite reed player Buddy Collette as well as such notable musicians as
Bud Shank,
Pete Jolly,
Gerald Wiggins,
Red Mitchell
and Shelly Manne.

The edition also boasts the addition of 4 bonus tracks taken from the peak of Hall's association with the Chico Hamilton Quintet.

"Clarity is the thing I'm after. I want a picture in my mind of the way the solo looks as I'm playing it. That way I can keep it from becoming boring - to me or the listeners. I get bored very easily, and I think that's one thing that helps me avoid clichés... Listening is still the key." - Jim Hall
