Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis – The Great Guitars (with Pat Metheny & Jim Hall. Season One, 2006 ep. 03)

The guitar episode features Jim Hall with Pat Metheny, and it’s probably the series at its best. The idea, generally, is to pair an older master with a younger figure. (Mr. Hall is 75, Mr. Metheny 51.) The mild-looking Mr. Hall is brave enough to utter actual thoughts: first he claims to harbor no nostalgia for the past, then he casually mentions that Ben Webster taught him how to breathe through the guitar like a saxophonist. And bang! comes the edit. (Jazz is so cerebral, you know. It scares people.) But both musicians’ performances are worth watching. There’s a sense of digging in, and Mr. Metheny brings his regular trio, with the bassist Christian McBride and the drummer Antonio Sanchez.
