I discovered Jim Hall with this record and was instantly seduced. I'd heard of him as the major guitarist of the 1960s West Coast jazz trend and didn't think such a legend could sound so modern today. The 10 pieces he wrote for this album are each astutely tailored for the musician he duets with.
The two pieces with Bill Frisell, whose playing is so characteristic and personal, make that songwriting quality clear and are an excellent intro to the album. On "Bon Ami", Joe Lovano delivers a very sensitive, powerful and moving tenor saxophone part. "Snowbound" showcases a both eerie and compelling part by Gil Goldstein ; what is that instrument he's playing, you wonder? It's a bass accordian (never heard that before) and the strange mode he plays in adds to the effect. The two pieces with Mike Stern are also among my favorites. "Uncle Ed", in particular, is a very lively blues, with excellent support from Andy Watson on drums. The "rivaling" solo and comp parts by Jim and Mike are incredibly brilliant ; Mike Stern hits an intense mid-solo of blues-rock-jazz fusion and Jim Hall's heartful and intense humming in the background while he gives all he has in each of his notes is deeply moving.
A strong addition to any modern jazz fan's discotheque, I believe.

Jim Hall set up a number of guest artists to play in basically duo format. Most of the songs have Scott Colley and Andy Watson playing bass and drums extremely tastefully, but they intentionally stay mostly in the background. Jim Hall wrote most of the songs, and with "Frisell Frazzle" he came up with an angular one for Bill Frisell. It's pretty good, though the next song with Frisell, "Simple Things", is blander. Joe Lovano plays some hearty tenor sax on "Calypso Joe" and "Bon Ami". Tom Harrell is in a bit of a Chet Baker mode during "Dream Steps" and the later "Skylark". Jim Hall gives the rhythm section a break during his songs with accordianist Gil Goldstein. "Snowbound" and "Dialogue" are perhaps the most headphoney on the songs - you have to pay attention to the nuances to get the most out of the songs. The two songs with Mike Stern, "Stern Stuff" and "Uncle Ed", are the swingingest.

Sometimes albums with a bunch of featured guest artists can be a mess, but this one works because Jim Hall coaxes careful, subtle performances out of everyone (less so for Mike Stern, who livens things up), so the CD coheres, and doesn't bump along.

This recording features a nice selection of music. The interplay between Mr. Hall and his guests is very smooth, mellow, and results in some fine jazz. I'd also recommend, if you can find it, as it is out of print, his collaboration with Ron Carter. Fine, fine recording.
