Very, very sad to hear this. Saw him perform live last year, so glad I did...One of the most brilliant recordings ever for me
will always be his version of Concierto de Aranjuez with Chet Baker, Paul Desmond,...The legends are starting to go.
Cheers Jim. May you be happy wherever you are and thx for the music.

Very sad to hear Jim Hall has passed. He was an amazing guitarist and I have seen him live many times. The recent multi-disc set of the Toronto trio performance from 1975 is one of the best jazz trio performances ever.
