Andrew Hill - Point Of Departure mp3 album

Point of Departure is a studio album by American jazz pianist and composer Andrew Hill, recorded and released in 1965 on the Blue Note label. Point of Departure was reissued on CD by Blue Note in 1988 and again in 1999 when recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder remastered the album, adding alternate takes of "New Monastery", "Flight 19", and "Dedication".

Hill's complex compositions straddled many lines in the early to mid-1960s and crossed over many. Point of Departure, with its all-star lineup (even then), took jazz and wrote a new book on it, excluding nothing. With Eric Dolphy and Joe Henderson on saxophones (Dolphy also played clarinet, bass clarinet, and flute), Richard Davis on bass, Tony Williams on drums, and Kenny Dorham on trumpet, this was a cast created for a jazz fire dance.

Pianist Andrew Hill's Point of Departure (1964) will never be mistaken for light cocktail jazz, but it's inclusion in this reissue series displays Music Matters' commitment to more adventurous material. In 1964, the term avant-garde could have been applied to any number of different musical angles in jazz. The free experiments of John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman, with their pure emotional howling set within very limited contextual framework, are perhaps the most notorious. This album includes some of the fiercest, high density writing of the era, with each track featuring tight, byzantine written statements and full-throated blending of timbres. The music includes dissonant harmonies, often employing multiple melodic ideas, and often played very fast. It would be easy to imagine the musicians scratching their heads on the first run through, struggling with music that reached for new levels of complexity.

Tenor Saxophone – Joe Henderson. Trumpet – Kenny Dorham. Classic blue, white Blue Note labels with "A Division of Liberty Records, In. VAN GELDER mastering stamper in the runout of both sides. Back cover has "Blue Note Records In. 43 West 61st S. New York 23" at the bottom and "Blue Note ST-84167" upper right. Spine has Blue Note Stereo 84167.

Andrew Hill was a jazz pianist who only made the music he wanted to make. He is probably better known for this album than for all the other albums of his rather big oeuvre. Hill's complex constellations in the early and mid-60's stretched widely between well-known post-bop and avant-garde jazz

Reviews about Andrew Hill - Point Of Departure (1):
Ceck
What an album. It's the type of platter I can just keep turning over again and again. Andrew Hill and his incredible sidemen have created a painting I just don't get sick of looking at. Abstract and wandering, while still grounded in the earth. Avant and free, but soft and beautiful. Though everyone shines, Dolphy really has some revelatory highlights in here. And while each song is magnificent, "Spectrum" is quite the piece to be reckoned with. Forward-thinking, emotive, intriguing and surprising. A stunning, standout cut from the Blue Note catalogue.
