R.I.P. Andrew Hill
I love his music. I even gave a lecture on his music several years ago.
I have a great regard for someone who follows his own
logic, challenges the mainstream mode AND achieve artistic
excellence. In many cases, so-called "avan-garde" are hard
trying to do things different, but their results are not
impressive aesthetically. Hill achieved both. And boy, he swang
hard when he wanted. I'll miss him.
