Technical prowess and the ability to create lyrical and meaningful compositions is the continued buzz pianist Pamela Hines exudes whether recording or performing live. Hines latest endeavor, Hall Sings Hines on Spice Rack Records, is a culmination of the relationship and musical interaction between vocalist April Hall and Pamela Hines. Hall has been a guest vocalist on several of Hines previous releases, and this latest release explores the brilliant interaction between composer and vocalist and showcases Hall's ability to interpret Hines original works with intensity and depth. Hines has an instrumental release forthcoming in the Fall of 2006, which will display the instrumental side of Hines and her ability to not only be a versatile composer, but a technically superior instrumentalist.

Hines continues to achieve great heights in her career. An early recording earned her a guest spot on Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland on National Public Radio in 2000. As a working group, Hines' trio with David Hines and Bob Guilotti was one of the Boston Globe's “picks of the week" in 2005. She was a featured artist in the Questionnaire section of Cadence magazine, a decades-old international jazz review magazine. Hines consistently reveals her cohesive and compelling works, with every venture revealing deeper and compelling balance. Hines continues to prove she is a powerful force in the jazz genre. John Stevenson of Ejazznews listed Hall Sings Hines at number 5 of the top 10 CDs of the year.

Jerry D'Souza describes Hines' latest release: “Hines has a free-flowing gait as a pianist. Her ideas are relevant and they bring context to the development of her songs. She gets off on the right track with 'I Go for You,' essaying a light undercurrent of swing. She improvises but keeps her inventions in check to make this a nice lithe tune. There is a balmy air to 'Encinitas.' Hall has a sultry edge to her singing, but the overall atmosphere is an easy one, a warm wind wafting across softly. It is time to go up-tempo and flex the rhythm when they take it 'To the Street.' Hines parlays some colorful runs, making her work all the more interesting as she steers clear of unnecessary flourishes. The blues has to be in there, and '4 Blues,' a traipsing song, is given a lucent presence by Hines while Hall makes the lyric jump and sit up with her vocal acrobatics."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
