Andrew Hill

Black Fire

Release Notes
  • 180gm deluxe vinyl reissue

Insanely Blue Note debut album from Andrew Hill – edgey brilliance at its best, a lean, stripped-down session that has Hill playing with Joe Henderson, Richard Davis, and Roy Haynes – in a mode that’s somewhere between his own Smokestack album, and the stark modernism of Jackie McLean’s mid 60s “new thing” work. The whole set’s pretty darn great – one of the more mindblowing Blue Notes you’ll ever hope to buy – and tracks include “Pumpkin”, “Subterfuge”, “Cantarnos”, and “McNeil Island”. (courtesy of
