Jim Hall - Where Would I Be ?

Although the rhythm section was more "modern" than he usually used (keyboardist Benny Aronov, bassist Malcolm Cecil, and Airto Moreira on drums and percussion), guitarist Jim Hall (who always had a harmonically advanced style anyway) has little difficulty adapting to the fresh setting. Highlights of the well-rounded CD reissue include Hall's "Simple Samba," "Baubles, Bangles and Beads," an unaccompanied "I Should Care," and Milton Nascimento's "Vera Cruz."

Thanks for the great run of Jim Hall. I've always liked the song Bangles, Baubles and Beads from Wes Montgomery's version of it...can't wait to hear this one.

Incredible Mel. I found this LP in Amsterdam last summer, but couldn't find the time to digitalize it. Now thanks to you it's done...
