Jazz Musician of the Day: Andrew Hill

All About Jazz is celebrating Andrew Hill's birthday today!

Over nearly half a century, composer-pianist-ensemble leader Andrew Hill gained international jazz renown for his uniquely original music and recorded ouevre, which is by turns dark, fragile, funny, stark, unforgettably tuneful, percussive, insightful, oblique, transparent and mysterious.
