remembering jim hall
participant offers for remembering jim hall
- Stories from people that knew Jim Hall, his neighbors, musicians, and friends
- Access to some of Jim Hall and Red Mitchell’s previously un-released recordings
Jim Hall had a profound impact on almost anyone he met. Not only was he influential to generations of musicians in all styles,he also connected with people in a very special way. He expressed a sincerity in the way he listened to people, just as genuine as the “Art of Listening” that he is so well known for in music.
For the first installment of the project, we are excited to share previously unreleased recordings of Jim Hallwith bassist, Red Mitchell, live at Sweet Basil. The original recording,Jim Hall/Red Mitchell, was released in 1978, produced by John Snyder and recorded by David Baker and Chip Stokes. Now with these newly discovered recordings, fans can re-visit these incredible nights of music and hear more fantastic musicianship from both Jim Hall and Red Mitchell.
Throughout this project, we will celebrate Jim Hall as both the guitar master and as a great human being. We will share stories from the people who knew Jim, his neighbors, family, musicians, and friends.
Some of the musicians, friends, and family that Jim worked with closely throughout his career have been involved in curating and selecting this music to be released for the first time.
We hope that you will join us in celebrating Jim Hall’s music and life and thank you for being a part of this musical journey.
