O’s Notes: Pianist Steve Hillman takes us on a journey through fourteen of his latest compositions. He is joined by Darrell Davison (cello), Iain Ballamy (sax), Gareth Davies (fl), Phil Morgan (violin) and Rain (b). They open with “Fired Up”, a spirited marching band song. Morgan’s strings paint the sullen mood on “As Chance Would Have It” and Davies is showcased on “Flute Jazz”. There is a sense of racy adventure on “What The Hell” and high energy on “The Chase Is On”. The trip concludes with “Journey’s End” and we can picture the credits rolling down the screen. It is a fruitful trip.
