As the culmination of one of his regular teaching residencies, NEC faculty member Jason Moran presented a performance of the music of his mentor Andrew Hill in a concert titled simply The Music of Andrew Hill" on Thursday, January 28. Moran led NEC students in the re-imagining of Hill's music, including material drawn from several landmark albums.
The concert took three different approaches to the world of Andrew Hill
. Interspersed through the evening, four pianists took on songs dating from the beginning of Hill's recorded output in the 1950s to a late work from 1999. An instrumental sextet revisited Hill's 1964 album Point of Departure.
Another instrumental group was augmented by four singers for Hill's experimental choral album from 1969, Lift Every Voice.
