"Arguably the greatest LP in the history of CTI!" 4.5/5 stars! - AllMusic

Jim Hall's Concierto was arguably the greatest album in the history of CTI and possibly a masterpiece. With two legendary players in the frontline, trumpeter Chet Baker and Paul Desmond, and assisted in the back by pianist Roland Hanna, upright bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Steve Gadd, Hall interprets standards and engaging originals. The ensemble's cover of Cole Porter's "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" and its exploration of the Hall original "Two's Blues" are the equivalent of the standout title track.

A master of melody who never wastes notes, the centerpiece for this release is Hall's interpretation of one movement from Rodrigo's "Guitar Concerto," arranged by Don Sebesky.
