    Jim Hall & Pat Metheny Acclaimed Duo Album Reissue Out Now

    The acclaimed 1999 album Jim Hall & Pat Metheny, reissued for the first time on Nonesuch Records, is out now. Pat Metheny's duo collaboration with Jim Hall, whom he has called the "father of modern guitar playing," features 17 tracks: original tunes from each guitarist, several improvisations captured in the studio, plus six tunes recorded live in concert, including Gershwin's "Summertime." The album is available now in the Nonesuch Store.

    "The excellence of the playing is the heart of the matter," says the Philadelphia Inquirer of the album. "It's a privilege to listen in." The Los Angeles Times calls it "extraordinary."

    To pick up a copy of Jim Hall & Pat Metheny, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout. You'll also find Metheny's latest solo album, What's It All About, released earlier this year.

    Pat Metheny was recently named Best Guitarist of the Year in the 76th annual DownBeat Readers Poll. He is currently touring Europe with another set of collaborators, the Pat Metheny Trio, featuring Larry Grenadier on bass and Bill Stewart on drums. For details, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
