(The Herald, concert review)

  Heading North
FMR Records 1998
UGCD 060898

Following hot on the heels of his debut this second CD of Rob's as leader features another great European line-up of Philipp van Endert (gtr) Dave Frankel (pno) Alex Keen (bs) and Paul Cavaciuti (dr) who also contributed to 'Open Up'. This excellent recording has also helped broaden the audience base for Rob's music beyond purely jazz-orientated listeners.

"A gem .... Pat Metheny could have authorised this, and maybe might wish he had."
(John Wickes, author of 'Innovations in British Jazz')

"Heading North further establishes Hall as a major writer and musician" (Avant magazine)

Open Up
FMR Records 1997
UGCD 010697
open up

Rob's debut CD for FMR Records establishing him as a major new voice in contemporary European music. Features European line-up including Jim Mullen (gtr) Joachim Leyh (drums) Dave Frankel (pno) Alex Keen (bs). Critically acclaimed and now virtually sold out !

"Impressive debut" (Rob Adams, The Herald)

"It's encouraging to hear a young musician such as Rob Hall blowing saxophone and clarinet in such a melodious way" (Jazz Journal International)

'Free-world Music' 2002
FMR CD97-JO602

Debut recording from the Freewheelers, a new jazz/improvised quartet featuring Rob on soprano and tenor saxes with Australian trombonist Chris Greive, Scots bassist Mike Dunning and American drummer Paul Mills. Recorded in Jan 2002 at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.



Hotwire Records (Germany) 1995
EFA CD 12070-2

International line-up featuring Mike Stern & Dan Gottlieb (USA) Philipp van Endert & Alex Gunia (Germany) Rob Hall (UK) Rene Engel & Jaytee Tetterissa (Netherlands) and others. Recorded in Cologne during 1992-3.

The bizarre title is a play on the german word 'jazzig' meaning jazzy. As guitarist Philipp van Endert helpfully pointed out "... it's jazz, but it's sick!"
