“Jihi” CD Review: JAZZWEEK.COM By Keith Zimmerman “His Tyner/Evans-tinged jazz quartet isn’t usually what you associate with the Texas capital, but maybe you should. “After the Fact” will recall the firm lushness of Evans,Jarrett, and Jamal, and the song has plenty of chops and bite. “Once Around the Block” evokes a nice Stan Getz-styled mood and pianist Hall frames the tune nicely. Kudos to saxophonist Adam Kolker for mixing it up on tenor, soprano and bass clarinet. Sounds like Heart Music, the Austin-based label, have another airplay-friendly winner for jazz radio.”  http://www.jazzweek.com/feature/article/7_000227.html

where Hall studied -- laying claim to one of the top jazz programs in the nation. Jihi can be taken as a good indication that Doug Hall may well be that state's next, if by no means its lone, star in the jazz world.” -– Drew Wheeler, CDNOW Senior Editor, Jazz
