Andrew Hill

Born:

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. With the release of Dusk (Palmetto Records), his first album in ten years, Hill reaches another peak, equaling high points of composition and collaboration he achieved in the 1960s with such innovators as Eric Dolphy, Kenny Dorham, John Gilmore, Roy Haynes, Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, Elvin Jones, Sam Rivers, Tony Williams and Reggie Workman, most often commissioned by Blue Note Records. A folio of songs for sextet loosely inspired by Cane, Jean Toomer's classic volume of stories and poems published during the Harlem Renaissance, Dusk features Hill's New Point of Departure Sextet of virtuosi and the mature vision of an artist who has always flourished just beyond fame's spotlight, the better to see, hear, feel and create without its insistent glare

L'iniziale amore per visionari artisti rock come Robert Fripp e Brian Eno s'è arricchito nel tempo di approcci, tanto liberi quanto anticonvenzionali, di Derek Bailey e altri esponenti dell'avanguardia inglese degli anni settanta. La ricerca ...

Family Plan: Family Plan

Read "Family Plan" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Family Plan belongs to the strain of piano trios, formed in the wake of The Bad Plus, that eschew a straight acoustic jazz approach in favor of music which often experiments with distortion, repetition and knotty, mechanical melodies, all of which display the close-knit interaction between the three group members, pianist Andrew Boudreau, bassist Simon Willson, ...
