Jim Hall - Subsequently

Jim Hall's third CD for Musicmasters is the usual excellent mix of well-crafted originals and thoughtfully-arranged standards that one has come to expect from the veteran guitarist. It also marks the addition of young keyboardist Larry Goldings and the recording debut of a promising young Danish tenor saxophonist Rasmus Lee. The leader's "Subsequently" is an immediately infectious song that kicks off the release, while "Pancho" is a captivating bossa nova with a few twists thrown in, and "Waiting to Dance" is a brisk waltz that has a few detours into post-bop. Hall's also covers his wife's tasty composition "The Answer Is Yes" once again. Standard fare includes a gracefully swinging "I'm in the Mood for Love" and a foot-tapping "More Than You Know" ; harmonica player Toots Thielemans is a special guest on his own upbeat "Waltz for Sonny." With the demise of Musicmasters, this highly recommended CD could soon turn into a hard to find collectable, so it merits immediate an immediate search.

Hi Mel, it's a great site you run here with excellent music, some of which has been invaluable in my musical education and pleasure.
May I ask a favour - that you note for each posting what is the file format? That way I can know if e.g. you're offering FLAC when I may already only have the MP3. I know this will be more trouble for you, but it's really useful information if I'm considering whether to download.
