Worthy as it is compact, this project is an instrumental beat tape with something different - Mr. Hill’s ongoing search in the form of his singular texture and phrase.
Blending aspects of all Black Music - Hip-hip, jazz, R & B, soul, and blues - he features compatriots who lend that much more personal freshness. Respectively on bass and kit, Junius Paul and Makaya McCraven are joined by Brett Willams on effectual Rhodes.
The tape also entails compelling dialectic from an interview had earlier this year in the city. In it, legend-drummer Marvin Bugulu Smith and Hill transparently approach meditation, oneness with the universe, and how these might touch - and be touched by - the music of the everyday world.
This project is a wonder-filled opportunity to receive by giving - in imitation of Mr. Hill's always-inspiring Attentiveness.
