Wikipedia : This day (December 11, 2013), in New-York City, died James Stanley a.k.a. Jim Hall, an American jazz guitarist.

@ ArtistShare : Some years ago, Guitar Player magazine quoted Jim as saying I do feel good about my playing. The instrument keeps me humble. Sometimes I pick it up and it seems to say `No, you can’t play today.’

Official Website : The first formal recognition came in 1997, when Jim won the New York Jazz Critics Circle Award for Best Jazz Composer/Arranger. His pieces for string, brass, and vocal ensembles can be heard on his “Textures” and “By Arrangement” recordings. 

@last.fm : Jim Hall educated at the Cleveland Institute of Music, moved to Los Angeles where he began to attract national, and then international, attention in the late 1950s. By 1960 Jim had arrived in New York to work with Sonny Rollins and Art Farmer, among others.
