5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have Recording December 17, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
This is a duo that simply had to be recorded, and what they've created is beyond lovely! It left me in awe on first listening. It's actually a two-CD set, guitar duo with Jim and Bill, and quartet with Scott Colley (bass) and Joey Baron (drums). All four of these masterful musicians have created absolute magic. And the intimacy captured by this recording is a rare rare thing. The music hovers in the air and draws you into its stillness giving us music that goes way beyond music, and without question, music that transcends genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Throughout is my favorite track! December 17, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
The first track on the disc 1 "Throughout" really blew my mind. The first time I listened to it, it freaked me out a little. But as I listened to it over and over again, I was just caught by the mastery work of Jim Hall and Bill Frisell. It gave me this beautiful and pure image of underwater where the moon is shining through.

This album is very rich. First, you can just enjoy the duo intensely. Then you can hear the quartet having fun. I recommend this album anyone who likes swing, avant garde, and any type of jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, diverse album December 17, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
This album is really great.
With two cds worth it has a huge amount of music. The first disc is just duo with Jim Hall and Bill Frisell featuring many great originals and some covers too. They even do a version of Dylan's "Masters of War". The duo playing is amazing, Bill often is taking full advantage of his pedal effects while Jim plays beautiful melodies over the soundscapes. The first track is my favorite.

The second disc is totally different and really swingin'. They add Scott Colley on Bass and Joey Baron on drums. There are a few free pieces with some really great interaction as well as some great arrangements of standards.

Check this album out!

5.0 out of 5 stars buy this! July 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I purchased the downloads simply out of profound admiration for the musicians. I thought it would be good, but perhaps a bit demure. After a few listens I realized there was so much more. I've listened to this music every day since purchasing, and I keep hearing more. This music far surpasses 99% of everything else out there. It is deep, and comforting and adventurous and satisfying. The chops are there. The soul is there. The peace is there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful recording of two jazz guitar masters December 13, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This recording is excellent. The sound quality is fantastic, of course, and the interplay between two of the greatest jazz guitarists ever is not to be missed. I purchased this the day that Jim Hall died, and am completely satisfied with my purchase. What a legacy he leaves us of wonderful music, encouragement of younger musicians, and teaching.
