A fine example of Herb Hall's delicate clarinet artistry. The two lp's that make up this cd were originally released on Clive Wilson's small N.O. label. The first session pairs Herb with the wonderful stride pianist Don Ewell. The second pairs him with the equally wonderful New Orleans pianist Jeanette Kimball. Clive Wilson plays his New Orleans style trumpet on this one as well. The tunes from both sessions have a lovely laid back feel to them. Nothing is hurried, yet the amazing musicianship of these players flows endlessly. This beautifully recorded cd is one of the most relaxing listens you will probably ever encounter. It's warmly recommended to everyone.
