In a musical age driven by a cookie cutter, hit single mentality, where the powers that be do everything they can to pigeonhole artists to fit into simple categories, Dave Hill goes joyfully out on a limb to celebrate the true adventurous spirit of contemporary jazz. Ensembling powerfully with some of the most exciting and innovative performers on the L.A. scene, the veteran guitarist offers a richly textured mix of beautiful melodies and energetic improvisations on his independently released debut Two Seasons. Realizing that the spirit of truly great music can’t always be so tidy and contained, Hill digs deep into his foundational Wes Montgomery influence with a modern approach and comes up with an eclectic experience to create the ultimate player’s project. Each moment of the 60 plus minutes of Two Seasons invokes a unique mood and vibe, beginning with the thoughtful and cool electric melody that introduces the opening track “Remembering You.” Karukas’ elegant piano melody eases the tune into an easy swinging, then more aggressive jazz mode, with Hill strutting his stuff over Cohen and McIntyre’s increasingly intense rhythm patterns. The title track lives up to its multi-faceted promise, breaking laid back and melodic with a lush Hill/Suzuki interaction before Hill turns his electric axe loose for some explosive rock fusion; the tune also includes Karukas’ unmistakable shimmering electric piano and tasteful playing.
