This amazing DVD presents two separate performances by three modern jazz guitar masters: American players Jimmy Raney (1927-1995) and Jim Hall (born in 1930 and age 78 at this writing), and the Hungarian Attila Zoller (1927-1998), who is present on both concerts. The first segment presents two extended tunes from a long concert that has only been previously issued as audio recordings. However, it’s wonderful to actually see such an underrated and rarely filmed figure as Raney perform. Raney suffered from Meniere’s Disease for thirty years, a degenerative condition that eventually led to almost complete deafness in both ears. His playing, however, doesn’t seem affected here, where he interacts with his friend Zoller (who was practically the same age). The second performance comes from another long concert, from which some more tunes are known to have been performed. This time Zoller was paired with the great Jim Hall. No other preserved collaboration between Zoller and Hall is known to exist with the exception of a couple of tunes recorded in Tokyo, Japan, on June 1970 (on that occasion a third guitarist was added: Kenny Burrell). Renowned bassist Red Mitchell (1927-1992) and Swiss drummer Daniel Humair (born in 1938) join Hall and Zoller on this Hannover show, but the formations vary from tune to tune between a guitar duet, a quartet, a trio and a guitar/bass duet (as detailed on the track listing). Oscar Pettiford’s famous “Blues in the Closet” closes this wonderful DVD by three guitar masters.
