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.

He often played in the New York clubs of Jimmy Ryan and Eddie Condon in the late 1950s and 1960s.
