Hallways features a compelling program of evocative original music, performed superbly by
a first rate ensemble featuring new tenor saxophone star Troy Roberts (Jeff "Tain" Watts, Joey Defrancesco), pianists Martin Bejerano (Roy Haynes) and Tal Cohen (winner of the 2014 Detroit Jazz Piano Competition), bassist Josh Allen and drummer Kyle Swan. This ambitious program of new music plumbs a wide depth of feeling and an expansive landscape of mood, ranging from uncomplicated, joyous swinging (Tones For Jones) to probing angularity (Wanderer) and yearning introspection (Meditations). Throughout, Hall's expressive, fluent trumpet voice provides a searching, yet centered focus to the musical program.
"I invite you to listen to and enjoy this recording-a most estimable debut by this talented trumpeter/composer
and his accomplished ensemble. I'm very proud of Jared, and elated by the opportunity to release his maiden voyage on Hollistic MusicWorks as the first title of its Mentor Series." -Brian Lynch
