Concierto de Aranjuez - Jim Hall = 19+ minutes of pure bliss and getting lost in total beauty


Over 20 years ago I asked a friend and jazz guitarist for a recommendation of a jazz recording he really likes, as I was beginning to dip my toes into the genre.

He pointed me to Jim Hall’s Concierto. Little did I know that this would become and remain one of my all-time favorite pieces of music of any genre. At the time, I had no idea who the accompanying players were either, apart from maybe Chet Baker. His solo at 9:15 is out of this world gorgeous - and frankly so are the others by Paul Desmond and Roland Hanna. Also on deck were Ron Carter (bass) and Steve Gadd (drums) and recorded was the whole affair in 1975 by RVG.

@nkphoto --While I don't listen to a lot of jazz apart from Art Tatum, thanks for pointing us to this piece--I first heard it when i bought a trumpet for my son and a Sketches of Spain CD came with it, but after listening to this version i prefer it over Miles' version.  Truly beautiful and Chet Baker's solo is sublime...
