Overview

The double-disc anthology Hallmarks: The Best of Jim Hall collects a nice cross section of material that jazz guitarist Jim Hall recorded for the Concord and Telarc labels from the early '70s onward. Here listeners find the often cerebral but never boring Hall making his unique brand of jazz that finds room for expansive post-bop improvisation as well as Latin rhythms, gorgeous harmonies, and beautiful melodies. Included here are not only such memorable standards as "Autumn Leaves" and "Alone Together," but also such superb Hall originals as the energetic "Simple Samba," the poignant "João," and the organically atmospheric "Snowbound." This is reflective, intricately composed and executed music that is truly the hallmark of sophisticated modern jazz.
