Thanks! Share it with your friends!


…Where Would I Be? is an album by guitarist Jim Hall which was recorded in 1971 and first released on the Milestone label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
Although the rhythm section was more “modern” than he usually used (keyboardist Benny Aronov, bassist Malcolm Cecil, and Airto Moreira on drums and percussion), guitarist Jim Hall (who always had a harmonically advanced style anyway) has little difficulty adapting to the fresh setting. Highlights of the well-rounded CD reissue include Hall’s “Simple Samba,” “Baubles, Bangles and Beads,” an unaccompanied “I Should Care,” and Milton Nascimento’s “Vera Cruz.” (https://goo.gl/xjj9jb).
