The Modest Jazz Trio - Good Friday Blues

A really unusual trio outing from Jim Hall – almost overlooked, and with a really unusual feel overall – quite airy at times, but with a bluesy undercurrent too ! There's a bit more bite here than on some of Jim's other records – a harder-edged, bluesier way of hitting the guitar that's almost much more Kenny Burrell than the usual sound from Hall – although Jim still manages a nice nimble touch at times too. The group features Red Mitchell on... piano and Red Kelly on bass – which keeps things very open and intimate – almost improvisatory at times. Titles include "Bill Not Phil", "When I Have You", "Willow Weep For Me", and "Good Friday Blues".

Well, #23 or #24. But I won't limit the spatial dimension just to "on earth." Anyhow, WONDERFUL AND WISE BENEFACTOR.

I never need to hear any version of Willow Weep For Me again, but I really wanna hear Bill Not Phil and I Was Doing Alright. Thanks!
