Jim Hall & Pat Metheny Duo Album to Be Reissued for First Time on Nonesuch Records November 8
The acclaimed 1999 album Jim Hall & Pat Metheny will be reissued for the first time on Nonesuch Records on November 8, 2011. 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 now available to pre-order 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 pre-order Jim Hall & Pat Metheny, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album available on release day. You'll also find Metheny's latest solo album, What's It All About, released earlier this year.
