Fragments: The Late 1960s Blue Note Recordings Of Andrew Hill

Pianist and composer Andrew Hill burst onto the jazz scene in the early 1960s with classic albums such as Black Fire and Point of Departure on the Blue Note label. Hill continued recording for the label throughout the 1960s, but many of the sessions went unreleased. After listening to the tapes last year with Mosaic producer Michael Cuscuna, Hill assented to their release in a three-CD compilation. We'll hear music from two sessions done with a string quartet (said to have influenced Greg Osby's Symbols of Light), a trio and septet date, and a session with Hill performing on organ.
