    While recording for Blue Note in the 1960s, composer and pianist Andrew Hill released some of the most forward-thinking and meticulously constructed albums of the post-bop era. The intelligence and daring that characterized those albums still inhabits Hill's recordings, as 2006's TIME LINES attests.
    Flanked by a fine quartet (a bassist, drummer, trumpeter, and the multi-talented Greg Tardy on tenor sax, clarinet, and bass clarinet), Hill still reels off witty, elliptical piano lines that bring together modal music and free jazz with strains of traditional bop structure. Packed with both fine compositions and playing all around, TIME LINES shows that Hill is still capable of making works of quiet, incisive brilliance.

  • Critic Reviews
    Magnet (p.118) - "Hill's compositions range from hip-shaking soul/jazz workouts to rhythmically challenging and emotionally complex works."
    Down Beat (p.68) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Bracketed by elegiac dedications to bassist Malachi Favors, Andrew Hill's second return to Blue Note is suffused with jagged melodies, roiling rhythms and bracing lyricism."
    JazzTimes (p.93) - "As a pianist, his note choices are still cryptic, his phrase shapes are still angular and his movements still scurry. As a composer/bandleader, he still creates exotic, darkly luminous aural landscapes that inspire soloists."
