Limited 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. A wonderful session by Andrew Hill, recorded in 1968, but issued only briefly in 1981, and out of print for years! The session is a key one in understanding Hill's work, as it's a bridge between the arch modernism of his early Blue Note sides, and the more Soul-oriented playing of the Grass Roots album. The group features Joe Farrell and Charles Tolliver on horns, both of whom open up the sound at the same time they're giving it a nice bottom, and the rest of the combo includes Victor Sproles on bass and Billy Higgins on drums. The album's an enchanting one, lighter than earlier years, but still with a compelling vision that's all Hill's own. Titles include "Dance with Death", "Love Nocturne", "Black Sabbath", "Partitions", and "Fish N Rice".
