Pianist Andrew Hill Dies

Monday, April 23, 2007

Pianist and composer Andrew Hill, one of the most advanced pianists ever to have recorded for Blue Note, died on Friday at the age of 75. He had been suffering from lung cancer. Long admired for his Blue Note albums recorded in the 1960s, he recorded again for the label in recent years, part of a big upswing in his career in the late 1990s for which he received belated recognition and critical acclaim. He toured in England for the Contemporary Music Network with an Anglo-American big band and as recently as last year toured with UK players Jason Yarde and Byron Wallen.
