Andrew Hill Solos


Region: 0
Running Time: Approx. 50 mins.

Andrew Hill was a great and even groundbreaking composer and pianist, extending the possibilities of the rhythmic and harmonic techniques of bop and hard bop. His composed melodies were labyrinthine and complex tunes that exhibited a sophistication born of mastery. As a pianist, Hill had a flowing melodicism and an elastic sense of time. Like his composing, Hill's playing had an ever-present air of spontaneity. "SOLOS: The Jazz Sessions" spotlights unaccompanied performances, designed and recorded specifically for television. Each program features complete musical pieces, insightful interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage.
