Andrew Hill - Black Fire (1963)

Pianist Andrew Hill's classic second LP. Over fifty years after its release, Black Fire still sounds fresh and exploratory. Some of the best music, right here.

Track listing:
1. Pumpkin
2. Subterfuge
3. Black Fire
4. Cantarnos
5. Tired Trade
6. McNeil Island
7. Land of Nod
8. Pumpkin (Alternate Take)
9. Black Fire (Alternate Take)



  1. Hill's Point of Departure is usually the go-to in his oeuvre, though Smoke Stack remains a kind of default setting for me. Thanks for the reminder that Black Fire is always there to amaze too.
