Jim Hall, Sit-Down Comic, Warms Up Crowd

Jim Hall,
interviewed by Jazz Critic
Bob Blumenthal
Thursday 5:30 said the following:

Free Jazz,
I don't mean I don't get paid,
we just start playing

I'm playing with,
what's his name?
Oh yeah,
Sonny Rollins.

No computer, no cell phone, kerosene amplifier

(faced with tough, complicated, slightly dry questions from a very knowledgeable audience, Jim leaned over to Bob and said) I feel like I'm in analysis

Sure, there were musicians in our family, my grandfather was a conductor
on the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway

Staying in the Now,
maybe a little in the Future,
never in the Past.
