Palmetto, 2002, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Avant Garde
O’s Notes: Conductor and pianist, Andrew Hill steps into Birdland with his Big Band for another adventurous set. Starting with the opener, “Devine Revelation, you will feel the power and warmth of a full brass section. That brass is continuously intertwined with Hill’s piano and rhythm section that includes Scott Cooley (b) and Nasheet Waits (d). They draw on blues, gospel, jazz, boogie-woogie and Afro-Hispanic chants to create A Beautiful Day.
