The horns in this are perfect. Anyway, here is an incredibly long conversation with Califone's Tim Rutili that you may have missed or just might want to read again at your leisure. [Via]
"Jim Hall, a jazz guitarist who for more than 50 years was admired by critics, aficionados and especially his fellow musicians for his impeccable technique and the warmth and subtlety of his playing, died on Tuesday at his home in Greenwich Village.... The list of important musicians with whom Mr. Hall worked was enough to earn him a place in jazz history. It includes the pianist Bill Evans, with whom he recorded two acclaimed duet albums, and the singer Ella Fitzgerald, as well as the saxophonists Sonny Rollins and Paul Desmond, the drummer Chico Hamilton and the bassist Ron Carter, his frequent partner in a duo." Hall was 83.
WARNING: Listening to this song will briefly transport you back to a time when not only did record stores still exist but you would spend hours combing through their wares wondering whether or not you should buy an album based on its cover and what you'd heard or read about the band. This warning only applies if you're old, though; younger listeners will probably be all, "What?" [Via]
