James Stanley Hall (December 4, 1930 – December 10, 2013) was an American jazz guitarist, composer and arranger. Premier Guitar magazine stated that "It could be argued that the jazz guitar tree is rooted in four names: Django, Charlie, Wes, and Jim ". Born in Buffalo, New York, before moving to Cleveland, Ohio, Hall was from a musical family, his mother played the piano, his grandfather violin, and his uncle guitar

Jim Hall's debut as a leader has a somewhat tortured history.

In August of 2015, New West Guitar Group released a collaborative project 'Send One Your Love' on Summit Records. The recording features guest jazz vocalists: Gretchen Parlato, Sara Gazarek, Becca Stevens, Tierney Sutton and Peter Eldridge. Praised as sharp and refined by the Seattle Times, the New West Guitar Group has released 7 full length albums since 2005. Graduates of USC’s Thornton School of Music, the New West Guitar Group's versatility as players and composers have given them a reputation as pioneers in the realm of guitar ensemble. Beautiful acoustic rhythms, vibrant classically infused single note lines and jazzy arpeggios cover the magnificent musical landscape these three players create.

We start this list with an album by one of the true greats of jazz guitar, namely Jim Hall, whose melodic yet inventive soloing has inspired a whole generation of jazz guitarists. The centrepiece of this album is an utterly spellbinding arrangement of the Adagio from Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez (you can hear it below). The quality of the other tracks is equally as high. Jim Hall’s deceptively understated playing is complemented by a top class ensemble: Chet Baker in particular plays some unforgettable solos

The Phoenix Sound - Jim West. We can’t forget the Detroit Motown Sound and the Bakersfield Sound of West Coast country music that rivaled the Nashville Sound with a more pronounced honky-tonk twang influenced by rock-and-roll, rockabilly, southwestern cowboy music and even Mexican polkas. Phoenix also had its own sound that drifted out of the tiny upstart recording studio known as Ramsey’s on Seventh Street and Weldon, just south of Indian School Road.
