Buck Hill: Relax

Read "Relax" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Il tenor-sassofonista Buck Hill incarna la tipica figura di musicician’s musician: artista stimato dai suoi colleghi, ma poco noto al grande pubblico. Pochi sono i suoi CD. Per apprezzarne il sound corposo e granuloso, che trae spunto dai grandi modelli del jazz classico in quanto al timbro. E dopo le produzioni di mainstream degli anni ’90 ...

Buck Hill: Relax

Read "Relax" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone


The return of tenor saxohonist Buck Hill as a leader has taken more than fifteen years. His storied career in the Washington, DC area is relatively well known. Deciding to stay at home and retain his “day job" as a postal carrier, Hill sacrified a future in jazz which surely would have taken him to a ...

Buck Hill: Relax

Read "Relax" reviewed by Ken Hohman


Most times, our exposure to jazz musicians is limited to those who are lucky enough to play jazz as a full-time gig, whether they're supported by a major label, an academic institution or a rich uncle with a love for jazz. Tenor saxophonist Buck Hill, a working-class jazz musician, was never anyone's charity case. Like his ...

Buck Hill: Relax

Read "Relax" reviewed by Jim Santella


Buck Hill brings back the fine taste of the organ combo with his quartet on Relax, interpreting standards and originals with the blues on his mind. Feelings run deep as tenor saxophone, organ and guitar alternate solo spots that run passionately through ballad territory and driving romps. Hill first recorded in 1957. The Washington, ...

Buck Hill: Relax

Read "Relax" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


A recent review of a book by a 26-year-old author noted that the only problem with the work was that the author had “not lived long enough or suffered enough. This sentiment is easily extended to music. Give me a grizzled veteran from the chitlin' circuit instead of a Julliard graduate anytime. Washington DC Tenor saxophonist ...

Buck Hill: Relax

Read "Relax" reviewed by Jerry D'Souza


Time has not effaced the grace or diminished the power of Buck Hill, who returns after a fifteen-year absence with this remarkable new recording. The tenor man recruited two old bandmates, Jerry Jones (drums) and John Ozment (Hammond A100), plus Paul Pieper (guitar), to create music that breathes passion and invention into every song. ...

Buck Hill: Relax

Read "Relax" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Relax has an old-school feeling, like a Blue Note album from the sixties. It's a straight-ahead sound, with Buck Hill's brawny, relaxed tenor saxophone in the embrace of a fine organ trio. I compare it to an “album" in part because there's a two-sided feeling to the eight songs. “Side one" opens with a with the ...
