Ah, I miss you Mr. Hill. Do you happen to have Hill's half of the mid-70s "Involution" set w/ Sam Rivers? I have the LP but need/want a CD backup.

Thanks, as always, for your great finds. Love the Japanese jazz!

thank you.
i think it is vass not wass, if you care.
this is a good album. almost subtly funky in spots. a little more direct than other hill stuff without being as mainstream as some of his later work.

Indeed still available, vesper, but thanks for introducing Mr. Hill to those who may not have encountered his wonderous music. Interested parties should run, not walk, to purchase the recently re-issued Compulsion! disc, in addition to essentials such as Smoke Stack and Point of Departure.

Regards,

Many thanks for this vesper. I only discovered Adrew Hill recently, then he ups and dies on me. Such is life.

Inovlution will be released next month as a Blue Note Connoiseur Series CD, under Hill's name with the title Change.

Hey boromir, the good news is the music lives forever! Enjoy and be glad you found Mr. Hill regardless of when it occurred.

Cheers
