14 Jim Hall

This list has nothing to do with "best Guitarist" because when I was growing up and listening to Hendrix and Clapton I had been brought up listening to jazz who had some wonderful players and from the 50s to the 70s, anytime someone cut a record, Jim Hall was the guy most would try to get for accompaniment and for his improvisational skills. Check out his album with Bill Evans, Undercurrent, where he and Evans extemporaneously toss musical ideas back and forth with amazing ease. I know of few rock guitarists who could do that. Most on the list don't improvise like Hall and other greats like Burrell, Herb Ellis or Barney Kessell. Tal Farlow? The same greatness. John "Mahavishnu" McLaughlin played rock, jazz and free form jazz. Played on Jack Bruce's fine instrumental album and worked with the great Miles Davis. Davis was harsh and intimidating to work with or for but even Miles was so impressed he titled a song from the album Bitch's Brew John McLaughlin, a great tribute from Miles. ...more
