Hemispheres Limited Collector's Edition, Double CD
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.

Jim Hall played with pianist Bill Evans in the early 60s. Frisell has played with Hall, McCoy Tyner, and just about everyone he gets a chance to perform and record with. Read morePublished on February 6, 2009 by Gismo Egberti
As a longtime Jim Hall fan I must say that this is his best CD ever. He and Bill Frisell are a perfect duo and pairing them with Scott Colley and Joey Baron was a stroke of genius. Read morePublished on November 30, 2008 by K. Clarke
Like a fine wine Jim Hall's guitar sounds only get better with age. The collaboration of Hall and Frisell is outstanding. Read morePublished on November 30, 2008 by RobC
