80-year-old guitar legend Jim Hall has been a major figure in the jazz world since the 1950s. His signature hollow-body jazz guitar sound, rhythmic subtlety and empathetic accompaniment style have made instant classics of his recordings with fellow jazz legends Sonny Rollins, Chico Hamilton, Bill Evans, Jimmy Giuffre, Ron Carter and Paul Desmond. A perennial favorite among fellow guitarists Hall has had the dual distinction of strongly influencing as well as sometimes collaborating with the most recognizable guitarists in jazz including Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, John Abercrombie, John Scofield and Mike Stern. The New Yorker has called Jim Hall, “the reigning master of the jazz guitar… a poetic player who says more with fewer notes than any living improviser.”
