Learn about and follow jazz musician Andrew Hill (Piano) at All About Jazz.
The Jazz Sessions spotlights Andrew Hill, a great and even groundbreaking composer and pianist. While many of his contemporaries were totally jettisoning the rhythmic and harmonic techniques of bop and hard bop, Hill worked to extend their possibilities; his was a revolution from within. The first live album by saxophonist Kenny G was released in 1989, peaking at number 2 on the Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and number 16 on the Billboard 200. This performance was recorded live at Humphrey's Concerts By the Bay in San Diego, California. The concert film includes one of his most popular recordings 'Songbird' as well as 'Don't Make Me Wait For Love'.
SOLOS: the jazz sessions is a 39 part television music profile/performance series produced in Canada by Original Spin Media. Each episode features complete musical pieces, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage with some of today's most notable jazz artists. Shot in HDTV with multiple moving cameras and a medley of elegant, cinematic lighting designs, SOLOS: the jazz sessions showcases an exciting and dynamic variety of jazz styles – from the blues and boogie-woogie to bebop and beyond.
Hill's album Dusk was selected as the best album of 2001 by both Down Beat and JazzTimes; and in 2003, Hill received the Jazzpar Prize. Hill's earlier work also received renewed attention as a result of the belated release of several unissued sessions made in the 1960s for Blue Note, notably the ambitious large-group date Passing Ships. In 2004 he appeared on SOLOS: The Jazz Sessions. As a consequence of his renewed prominence, a new Blue Note album titled Time Lines was released on February 21, 2006
