    To conjure such hues, and without showboating or flash — indeed, Hall has the mien of an Earth Space Science teacher. What a wonder.

  • just to add…the drummer on those clips-pete la roca sims- passed away yesterday…great player, he preceded elvin jones in the coltrane quartet..RIP


  • Thanks for sharing this! Great recording. I love the sound of a smooth guitar with light drums and a standup bass. You can’t beat it!
