Andrew Hill - Point Of Departure
I remember a group of us all went to this record store - FOPP in Covent Garden - and they were having a Blue Note sale, and every record was like three quid. And I remember all of us going in with like 30 quid and we’d just clean up on the catalogue, and that CD was one of the first ones I remember going home and listening to. I don’t know if you’ve had one of them experiences where you listen to a record and you just feel something change in you. Like, what's happening? How have I never heard anything like this? There's so many questions in your head. Even still to this day I’m like how did you even make that? How do you even begin to approach that and make a work like it, to this day it still stands that test of time; creativity, authenticity, sound, energy all of that stuff. Yeah man, shout out to Andrew Hill.
