Hill, Andrew – “Dusk ” – [Palmetto Records]
Andrew Hill has been around the mainstream since the early Sixties, composing and playing piano with Dinah Washington, Roland Kirk and many others. Here he has assembled a team of “Knitting Factory Types” to check out this next century of jazz. Moving from slow and mellow piano with horn ensemble to moderate new-bop to rhythmic pomp (almost Latin but still outside that) to trumpet ballad to playful joys. There are new and old things together here, tasteful and sweet, but with an edge you will like.
