Jim Hall's compositions can appear deceptively simple. With the sparse trio instrumentation on “Hide And Seek,” the angular set of staccato passages trace out a descending path through a harmonic structure beefy enough to provide ample room for the Steve LaSpina solo to follow. Hall tours the opening theme's geography with a series of ascending, unresolved chords before dropping back into his trademark whispery comping role. LaSpina then tells a long story that proves “Hide And Seek” is no child's game.
