Big Blues is an album by American flugelhornist Art Farmer and guitarist Jim Hall featuring performances recorded in 1978 and released on the CTI label.[1]


The Allmusic review stated "Since Farmer and Hall have long had very complementary styles (both being lyrical, harmonically advanced and thoughtful in their improvisations), it is little surprise that this set is a complete success".[2]
