Dave Hill Group
Sunday, November 27, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm$10
Dave Hill has toured extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, where he performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Dave has also played with Frank Gambale, Jimmy Earl, Three Dog Night, The Coasters, and Al Wilson.
His several New World recordings offer listeners a unique sound of contemporary jazz fusion. Showcasing his composing and arranging talents. New World finds West Coast guitarist Dave Hill at the top of his game as a player and composer.
A strong Larry Carlton influence is apparent on more than one cut; precise bends and sweet solos highlight cuts like “Waiting For You,” with its fadeout that tips its cap to the soul/gospel style Carlton played with the Crusaders in the ’70s. His cover of the Robben Ford/Russell Ferrante tune “Rush Hour” has the smooth, funky feel and his solo has the same bite that makes Carlton such a soulful player.
Anyone with a liking for blues-inflected jazz and jazz fusion will find Hill’s music a truly enjoyable listen.
