Grammy Award-winning Faith Hill releases her first home video, When The Lights Go Down, featuring a dozen live performances from one of the biggest stars in country and pop on DVD. Including hits from her 2002 #1 album, Cry, When The Lights Go Down adds bonus performances not seen on an NBC concert special that aired in November and was subsequently the hightest-rated CMT special of the year. With the behind-the-scenes, making-of story told by the singer, and additional bonus footage, the lights come up on Faith Hill in When The Lights Go Down.
Andrew Hill returned to the Blue Note label (where he made many significant releases during 1963-80) for a stimulating quintet date with vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, altoist Greg Osby, bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Ben Riley in 1989. The pianist's six originals (which are joined by three alternate takes on the CD) his dense chords behind the other improvisers and his own unpredictable solos are not all overshaowed by his talented sideman, even Osby who is heard in particularly inspired form. There are no weak performances on this superb post bop effort, Andrew Hill's strongest recording in several years.
