Jim Hall @ Birdland, Weds-Sat

The iconic guitarist’s sense of drama is keen, but artistically couched in the kind of muted narration that centers on all sorts of whispers, sighs and shadows. He needs just a handful of notes to melt your heart. Joey Baron has long been his most simpatico drummer, and the wily excursions of Greg Osby’s sax have occasionally given Hall new routes to follow as well. Along with bassist Steve LaSpina, they’re both part of this week’s ensemble.
