July 2, 2013 | Jim Hall on Johnny Carson
You hardly ever get to see extended musical sets on variety shows today, let alone featuring jazz. TV legend Johnny Carson was known for breaking comedians to the stage during his long screen career as a talk show host, and we forget, he also featured many fine musicians as well.
The following video treat features a progressive jazz piece from the Jim Hall Quartet, and a terrific rendition of the classic "Skylark." All we can say is if you ever wanted to build or buy it, this is the sonic model of what a great jazzbox mandolin should strive to sound like.
