New York saxophonist Jenny Hill distinguishes herself as an accomplished composer-arranger and first-rate soloist on The Chill Factor, her third release as a leader. You'll find
bebop meets Brazil, affecting ballads and two inventive takes on jazz classics on this versatile outing, with some bold playing on tenor, soprano and flute. Highly recommended. Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times.
Jenny Hill’s musical journey has resulted in a diverse resume that includes jazz, reggae, and latin traditions. She has toured and recorded with reggae greats such as Maxi Priest, Dennis Brown, Toots and the Maytals, and Burning Spear, as well as funk and soul artists Govt. Mule, Corey Glover, Daniel Ponce, Eumir Deodato, Bernie Worrell, DJ Logic, and MC Solaar. While a member of the DIVA jazz orchestra, Ms. Hill performed with jazz artists Nancy Wilson, Dianne Schuur, Clark Terry, Dave Brubeck, and Joe Williams.
Jenny’s original project, the Chill Factor, has performed in NYC and Brasilia, Brazil. Her jazz composition “Lost In Shallow Thought” won the JAZZIZ Woodwinds On Fire competition in 1996, and she also received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for private study with tenor saxophonist and jazz icon Joe Lovano.
