"This DVD was very interesting. I thought I was getting a concert - but what I got was a mini concert with instructional filler between each groove. Jim Hall is a gentle genius. He's very melodic and adds complicated arpeggios around each melodic line. This is what makes Mr. Hall one of a kind. He doesn't give us a lot of scales and modes between each line - he doesn't slap you w/ a barrage of notes. You get the melody with a few thrills. His choice of notes is what makes him unique. Anyway, I thought I was getting a concert, but Mr. Hall stops between each groove and tells you what he did in each song - step by step. For example: I played a G minor here and a C7 there. I found using the remote to fast forward the filler helps. All I wanted to do was relax and hear Mr. Hall play. As you can see, I gave Mr. Hall five stars, anyway. His music is one of a kind."

"Fantastic DVD, this will give you quite the introspective into Jim Hall and his playing. His jazz guitar skills are unparallelled and his approach is innovative. This DVD takes a look at all aspects of his guitar."
