Andrew Hill

Solos: The Jazz Sessions DVD

Review by Gary Hill

I really like this series – both in concept and delivery. The idea is deliciously simple. Take a jazz musician and set him free to improvise an entire performance. Additionally, the performance is stripped to the root by making these performances unaccompanied solos. In this edition we get a pianist who is of an era that blended old school bop with modern free form jazz. The result is compelling and powerful. It’s a great DVD that’s recommended to fans of jazz in general, but particularly to those who really enjoy jazz piano.


This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2010  Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.
