Jim was always my favorite. I used to occasionally hear him as a kid, on my old tube radio, from a station in Rochester, NY. RIP
I called jane on Friday dec 13 as soon as I read it and cried profusely . I was front row at his last performance in the Allen room where he shared the evening with John Abercrombie and Peter Bernstein. Seeing my friend in a wheelchair did not sap his vigor. Somehow I was moved to kiss him on his right cheek as I hugged him. We recently talked on the phone as he called me about a unique musical card I sent him. He told me Charlie Parker would have loved that card! I deeply miss Jim since I have known him since the early 60s as a teenage player. Words are incredibly feeble and unable to express how deeply he was cherished around the world. I cry every day for my dear,dear, teacher and friend. That oh so warm and loving human being known by the name of Jim Hall!
My thoughts and prayers for the Hall family, friends and all the great musicians who were close to Jim Hall. Our Jazz family has lost a great musician who will truly be missed. On a bright note, we should all be thankful for all the music Jim left us to listen to. Thanks for your music Jim. Rest in Peace.
We grieve with the family during this time. Romans 15:33.
Mr. Hall's family has my sincere sympathy. I was fortunate enough to hear Jim play in St. Louis in 2001. I talked my way backstage after the show, and Jim couldn't have been nicer in spending a few minutes with me and autographing my old Gibson catalog.
I've always felt connected through his music. Condolences to his family. Beautiful person and music. Thank you for what you gave us.
SO SORRY TO HEAR OF THE PASSING OF MR. HALL. THE TRUE GOD JEHOVAH HAS PROMISED TO BRING BACK OUR LOVED ONES SINCERELY.
I was privileged to have the opportunity to see his show with Joe Lovano earlier this year. He was humble, humorous, and played with immaculate emotion.
May the fond memories you share continue to be in your heart and mind. I am truly sorry for your loss. May the peace of GOD be with your family. Romans 15:33.
A beautiful life, one of the truly greatest musicians of our era. My sincere condolences to the family.
The GOD of tender mercies will comfort you In all your trials. (2Corinth. 1:3&4) I am sorry for your loss.
Jim Hall, you will always be a guitar hero of mine. You're always in the mix of influences on me whenever I pick up my guitar and play. All I can say is thanks!
Please accept my sincere condolences at this time. It is obvious that your family will miss this special person in your lives. May the peace promised in God's word (John 14:27) be active and may you all be helped to endure these times.
I know that these things are inevitable....but my heart is still broken. RIP Sir.
