The Avengers: On A Mission

Read "The Avengers: On A Mission" reviewed by Dave Wayne


If there's such as thing as good old basic, meat-and-potatoes straight ahead jazz, then The Avengers' new album On A Mission could fairly be characterized as good old basic meat-and-potatoes jazz-rock fusion.

Jim Hall - Bill Frisell: Hemispheres

Read "Hemispheres" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Solo in anni recenti ha cominciato a frequentare altri specialisti della sei corde, dapprima timidamente (nell'album Dialogues con Bill ...

Jim Hall / Bill Frisell: Hemispheres

Read "Hemispheres" reviewed by John Kelman


The magic that occurs when student meets teacher on equal footing years down the road is rare enough. With Jim Hall--one of the most influential guitarists of the past half century--his spare approach, a reference point for younger guitar icons including John Abercrombie, John Scofield and Pat Metheny, has resulted in more magic than most.

Jim Hall / Bill Frisell: Hemispheres

Read "Hemispheres" reviewed by Mark F. Turner


Hemispheres is a wonderful collaboration between two esteemed veteran guitarists, Jim Hall and Bill Frisell. Though each has travelled different yet celebrated paths, this is their first full length (double CD) release together.

Hemispheres is the first release by ...
