"JIM HALL'S THREE." Concord Jazz CJ 298. The concepts of Hall, a guitarist whose fingers are butterfly wings, have never been better presented, never more delicately delineated, than in this set of four originals and three standards. The bassist Steve La Spina (he's a professor of jazz at NYU) is not merely supportive; he is integral to the group's success, as is the drumming of Akira Tana. Hall communicates his innermost thoughts about the blues in his first recorded outing on 12-string guitar, the unaccompanied "Bottleneck Blues." 4 stars.
