There has been growing interest, increased mention in the world's media and the realization that the Danish jazz scene has given something of great value (and not only financially) to the international community. Jim Hall's work has covered more than 40 years and evokes past associations with people such as Chico Hamilton, Jimmy Giuffre, Sonny Rollins and Art Farmer, and the fact that they had some of their most interesting and unusual groups when Jim Hall happened to be in them. What these great artists (and many more) find in Hall is an artist of great sensitivity and intelligence, to whom the idea of co-operation is second nature but whoose approach is completely individual.
