His live and recorded collaborations with Bill Evans, Paul Desmond, and Ron Carter are legendary and he has earned widespread acclaim for his skills as a composer and arranger. Named an NEA Jazz Master in 2010, Hall performs and records with a variety of ensembles around the world. He has recorded fifteen CDs on Blue Note Records as a leader and launched his own label, “Inner Circle Music” in 2008.
