Editors’ Notes Jim Hall was alone among jazz guitarists in steadfastly embracing a clean, unfettered tone while adapting to countless approaches. During a career stretching from the mid-'50s into the 2010s, Hall demonstrated unmatched collaborative abilities. He thrived within intimate settings, forging an indelible bond with pianist Bill Evans, braiding lines of lyric sophistication on “I'm Getting Sentimental Over You,” and swinging freely without a drummer on “Seven Come Eleven.” His duet with trombonist Bob Brookmeyer on “Skylark” erases the incongruity of their instruments, with a surfeit of locked-in melodic splendor.
