Frank Kimbrough Helps Remember Andrew Hill

The JAZZ STANDARD PRESENTS THE ANDREW HILL LEGACY PROJECT 2016

This special two - night engagement celebrates the life and music of Andrew Hill (1931 - 2007) celebrating what would have been the pianist/composer's 85th year, with music by a host of Hill disciples and former sidemen.

9/20 ANDREW HILL'S SMOKE STACK

Vijay Iyer - piano John Hebert - bass Mark Helias - bass Eric McPherson - drums

The award - winning pianist Vijay Iyer leads a two - bass quartet in a performance of songs from Andrew Hill's Blue Note album Smokestack, which was a major influence on Iyer himself. "A dense, cerebral set of adventurous post - bop...Comprised entirely of original Hill compositions, Smokestack is in the middle ground between hard bop and free jazz." (Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic)

9/21 THE MUSIC OF ANDREW HILL

Frank Kimbrough - piano Ron Horton - trumpet J.D. Parran - woodwinds Marty Ehrlich - woodwinds Mark Helias - bass Nasheet Waits - drums

Frank Kimbrough, on piano, will be joined by many former Andrew Hill sidemen including reeds master Marty Erlich and drummer Nasheet Waits to range freely over the artist's wonderfully imaginative songbook from his late period music, including the landmark recordings Dusk and Time Lines. The music of Andrew Hill "is an eloquent example of how jazz can combine traditional and original elements, notation and pure improvisation, playing both outside and inside strict time and harmony." (The New YorkTimes)
