Herb Hall • Old Tyme Modern

Artist Biography by Scott Yanow
Overshadowed throughout his life by his older brother, Edmond Hall, Herb Hall had a softer and smoother tone on the clarinet and was talented in his own right. The son of a clarinetist (Edward Hall) and one of five musical brothers, Herb started out playing banjo with the Niles Jazz Band during 1923-25 before switching to clarinet and alto. He played with Kid Augustin Victor's band in Baton Rouge in 1926 and in 1927 moved to New Orleans. After performing with Sidney Desvigne, Hall had a longterm association with Don Albert (1929-37 and 1938-40) including a relocation to San Antonio that lasted until 1945. Hall freelanced in Philadelphia (with Herman Autrey) and New York, was with Doc Cheatham in 1955 and toured Europe with Sammy Price (1955-56). The clarinetist frequently played at Jimmy Ryan's and Eddie Condon's club in New York during the next decade. He toured with Wild Bill Davison's Jazz Giants (1968-69), worked often with Don Ewell and in the 1970's was frequently part of Bob Greene's World of Jelly Roll Morton show. Always a reliable player, Herb Hall led an album apiece for Sackville (1969), Storyville (1970) and GHB (an 1980 set shared with Louis Cottrell).

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Herbert "Herb" Hall (March 28, 1907 – March 5, 1996) was an American jazz clarinetist and alto saxophonist.
Herb was the brother of Edmond Hall and the son of clarinetist Edward Hall. He began on banjo with the Niles Jazz Band (1923–25), then settled on reeds. In 1926 he played with Kid Augustin Victor in Baton Rouge, and moved to New Orleans the following year. He played briefly with Sidney Desvigne, then played for many years with Don Albert (1929–40), moving to San Antonio with him and remaining there until 1945.
After this he moved to Philadelphia, where he played with Herman Autrey; a few years later he was in New York, working with Doc Cheatham (1955) and did a European tour with Sammy Price (1955–56). He played often in the New York clubs of Jimmy Ryan and Eddie Condon in the late 1950s and 1960s. In 1968-69 he toured with Wild Bill Davison's Jazz Giants, and then a stint with an offshoot band of The Jazz Giants, called "Buzzy's Jazz Family" which included Herman Autrey, Benny Morton, Sonny Drootin, Eddie Gibbs and leader Buzzy Drootin on drums. He did work with Don Ewell in the 1970s. He also appeared in Bob Greene's Jelly Roll Morton revue show that decade.
