Hall-800

The May/June ’13 issue of Elmore Magazine includes a feature story of mine detailing the legendary Jim Hall’s concert in March of 2013 at Drake University in Des Moines and a guitar clinic he held at Java Joe’s, a local jazz-friendly coffeehouse (sponsored by the Civic Music Association), as well as Hall’s some of Hall’s better-known students, including Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, Julian LageGary Larson (!) and Brian Camelio (founder and CEO of ArtistShare, with whom he has an extremely close relationship).

I’ll leave it for others to comment on the quality of the story, but I will say that my cousin, Erik Spooner, Elmore‘s graphics director, did an outstanding job on the visual layout. Some folks have asked me where they can find the story, meaning where on the Web. I’ve had to explain that this is a print medium, meaning Elmore is interested in selling copies, not giving away its content on the Web. So, as quaint as it may be seem in the Cyber Age, those wanting to read the article will have to do so the old-fashioned way — by purchasing a hard copy (which can be done online at Elmore‘s Web site).
