Andrew Hill

Lift Every Voice

HS025VL
Release Notes
  • One of the classic Blue Note entries into the “jazz and voices” sound that the label pioneered with Donald Byrd and Eddie Gale

A rare and beautiful Andrew Hill session. Hill leads a core jazz group that includes Woody Shaw, Carlos Garnett, Richard Davis, and Freddie Waits — and the group is backed by a vocal ensemble with a very spiritual vibe. The sound is a lot more hip than the Donald Byrd & Voices albums, and the playing of the core jazz group is very very soulful — along the lines of Hill’s Grass Roots album, which was also from the same period. The record’s similar to the Max Roach/Billy Harper vocal work around the same time, and titles include “Ghetto Lights”, “Hey Hey”, “Two Lullabies”, and “Love Chant”. A very unique album for Andrew Hill! (courtesy of www.dustygroove.com)
