Jim Hall Quartet

Flynn MainStage

"Jim Hall is the reigning master of the jazz guitar. This poetic player says more with fewer notes than any living improviser." – The New Yorker

Jim Hall, guitar; Greg Osby, saxophone; Scott Colley, bass; Joey Baron, drums

Critically acclaimed guitarist and National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master, Jim Hall is a true musician’s musician. With over 30 releases as a leader, including his latest, Hemispheres (ArtistShare) with Bill Frisell, Hall is known for his interactive improvisations and his passionate, often blues-laced playing. His collaborations with Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Paul Desmond and Ron Carter are renowned. His legendary work with Sonny Rollins on the 1962 release The Bridge (RCA Victor) inspires hushed reverence for its place in music history. But Hall’s reach extends far beyond his fingers; his skills have earned him a New York Jazz Critics Circle Award for Best Jazz Composer/Arranger and his pieces for string, bass and vocal ensembles transcend boundaries. Audiences marvel at Hall’s effortless expertise and his ability to cross barriers, bringing people together with evocative, deceptively simple compositions whose tremendous ripple effect will influence generations of musicians to come. The first half of the concert will include some of Vermont’s finest brass players accompanying the quartet in one of Hall’s signature works, Textures.
