SCCD 31026 Invitation / Andrew Hill Trio

The Chicago born pianist Andrew Hill recorded seven highly acclaimed albums for Blue Note in the mid-60s and became something of a cult legend. But in 1969 he withdrew from the recording and performing scene as a jazz musician and took up a post as composer in residence at Colgate University and later at the Smithsonian. This 1974 recording for SteepleChase is the first one in his five-year break from the jazz scene and the first ever trio recording which was enthusiastically received by critics and his followers.

The SteepleChase Invitation may be one of Hill’s most personal recorded legacies …” (Bay State Banner)

“ … a very fine release, …an invitation that all readers should take up .” (Jazz Journal)
