Music Education Monday: A jazz
guitar master class with Jim Hall

This week's for "Music Education Monday," here's a master class in jazz guitar with the late Jim Hall (pictured). Recorded in 2011, the three parts of Hall's workshop and performance seen in the video windows embedded below after the jump total just over three hours of material.

Hall, who died in 2013, first gained public attention in the mid-1950s with drummer Chico Hamilton's quintet, and went on to play with many important jazz performers of his generation, notably Jimmy Giuffre, Paul Desmond, Bill Evans, Art Farmer, Ella Fitzgerald, Lee Konitz and Sonny Rollins as well as with younger musicians including Pat Metheny, Joe Lovano, and Bill Frisell.

You can see the videos of Hall's master class after the jump...
