Chicago 1988 [no label, 1CD]

Chicago Jazz Festival. Petrillo Music Shell, Chicago, IL; September 4, 1988. Very good NPR broadcast.

Andrew Hill’s main influences were pianist Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell and Art Tatum. Uniquely innovative, he strove to always be advancing while staying grounded in the traditions of his influences. He would often play against the rhythmic pulse and move into different time signatures. Hill recorded for Blue Note Records for nearly a decade, producing a dozen albums. Jazz critic John Fordham noted that “his status remained largely inside knowledge in the jazz world for most of his career.” Hill passed away in 2007 at the age of 75.

Thanks to Mike Millard and carville for sharing the show at Dime.

carville noted:

Recorded from a live FM broadcast by the late and much missed MM, using unknown equipment. He made a copy of his now-lost master on a Maxell XLII90 cassette using Dolby C not long afterwards. That copy was digitized in 2021, using a refurbished Sony TC WR635S cassette deck and Goldwave.
