Spirit Talk is the debut album by John Moulder and Ken Hall.
Featuring a tantalising match of guitar and vibraphones, this album is the perfect vehicle to express the spirit of John and Ken's musical dialogue. Spirit Talk portrays a world of beauty and enchantment in which the magical partnership of the two instruments suit the music perfectly. The guitar and vibes weave together, creating an intriguing and uplifting album.
John and Ken's partnership has developed over the course of many years, and the tracks on the album are the core repertoire of this talented duo's ongoing collaboration. Compositions by Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea are featured, as well as work by both John and Ken.
In order to capture an intimate sound, the project was recorded live, with no editing, in the warm acoustical space of St Gregory the Great Church, Chicago. Ken Christianson's distinctive method of recording with a Nagra two track tape recorder and a pair of stereo microphones was able to convey the immediacy that characterizes many of their live performances.
