                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Looks like a lot of the old Jim Hall releases have gone stale, so I'll re-up 
some of my old grabs.  Here's some of his work from 1976.  Wow...I got my 
driver's license in 1976.  Holy shit, how did I ever get this old...

Sorry, I don't have a .log file on this one.  Enjoy and thanks to whoever 
posted it years ago.

Here is the Wiki on it:

Allmusic awarded the album 4 ?stars with the review by Scott Yanow stating 
"There is lots of variety on this ... He has separate duets with pianist Don 
Thompson, his wife Jane Hall, pianist Tommy Flanagan, and drummer Terry Clarke. 
He also overdubs acoustic and electric guitars ... teams up with pianist 
Flanagan and flugelhornist Art Farmer on two duets, and uses a slightly larger 
group ... there is plenty of intriguing music on this recommended set".
