Mr. Buck Hill
(And His Quartet)
FOR THE BEST IN TRADITIONAL
"Once you hear Buck Hill
play saxophone, you will never forget it."
"At once a fully-formed legend and a relatively recent
discovery... Hill recorded some exceptional albums for Steeplechase
in the 80s... At a time when Bop Brats dominate the headlines
and the obits are getting longer and sadder, Jazz needs Buck Hill
more than ever. Bill Shoemaker, DOWNBEAT
"He can be considered a neglected legend no longer. Buck
Hill is a masterful saxophonist, and if you miss out on him now,
the fault is your own." Art Lange, Jazz Critic.
"Hill turns in one supremely confident performance after
another." Mike Joyce, The Washington POST
"A veritable phenomenon whose robust and swinging approach
is absolutely irrepressible." Chuck Berg, JAZZTIMES
"His swinging and brawny horn sounds better than ever
now... Hill continues to make a case for himself as one of the
most vital tenor men alive." Bob Young, JAZZ TRADITIONS
"A throwback to another era of leading men in jazz."
Mark Miller, Toronto GLOBE
"His albums are occasions: never overreaching, they present
Mr. Hill as a boss tenor; assertive, fluent in bee-bop and magnanimous."
The New York TIMES
"Hill has the chops and soul to make it in a competitive
big city, yet he has played in relative obscurity in his home
town. But talent won't stay hidden forever... it doesn't get much
more satisfying than this. Recommended." Louis Moody, Ottawa
