Very sad to hear this. I saw Jim perform a few months ago with Joe Lovano at a club called Blues Alley in DC, he was amazing. RIP

Sad. Love his work and his album with Pat Metheny is one of my favorites jazz guitar albums.

My fave record of his (among the ones I know) is one recorded in Berlin in 1969 called 'It's nice to be with you'.

The playing is absolutely fantastic and I rarely heard better sonics.

Another fave is 'Concierto' on CTI with Chet Baker, Paul Desmond and Steve Gadd on drums. I didn't think that doing 'Concierto de Aranjuez' this way would work but it works beautifully.

RIP, Jim. I did not know he played Blues Alley. I like that place. Glad you got to see him.

You are permitted. And here are the two of them form the great Interplay album. I remember the first time I heard this album (I hadn't read the credits), I thought "Who is that guitarist?"
Rest in peace.

Wow! Thanks for posting this! I didn't know that there existed more Bill Evans/Jim Hall albums besides 'Undercurrent' and 'Intermodulation'. I'm definitely going to buy this very soon.

A master musician, guitarrist and teacher.

Wonderful music you made.

Thanks Jim
