Jim Hall - Jazzpar Quartet + 4
Cat. no: 1018476
Release Date: 19th March 2021
Mid-price reissue of guitarist Jim Hall’s 1998 recording made in celebration of him wining Denmark’s prestigious Jazzpar prize, “the resulting concerts which followed are a valuable addition to Hall’s considerable discography.” AllMusic.
Jim Hall’s work has covered more than 40 years and evokes past associations with people such as Chico Hamilton, Jimmy Giuffre, Sonny Rollins and Art Farmer, and the fact that they had some of their most interesting and unusual groups when Jim Hall happened to be in them.
What these great artists (and many more) find in Hall is an artist of great sensitivity and intelligence, to whom the idea of co-operation is second nature but whose approach is completely individual.
Personnel: Jim Hall (guitar), Chris Potter (tenor saxophone), Thomas Ovesen (bass), Terry Clarke (drums), The Zapolski String Quartet
