When relaxing in the evening Robin has been watching a jazz trio and really enjoying it. They had been to his first concert and were equally admiring.
Since then they have met up a few times for meals and to chat. Robin is particularly keen on the way the bass player plays. It transpires that he is called Thomas Hebb and is the nephew of Bobby Hebb who wrote 'Sunny', (you know the one, 'yesterday my life was full of rain....')
He's based in Boston and I think that Robin has his eye on him for the Claude Bolling concerto for Classic Guitar and Jazz Piano Trio. So if we ever get to arrange a tour of America with this piece then I know who Robin will be calling.
So faust, if you're reading, I'm still working on it!
'As always, it was sheer pleasure to observe Robin Hill's remarkable fluent technique: everything looks easy when he plays it.' Colin Cooper- Classical Guitar Magazine ----- 'Wonderful for their (Hill & Wiltschinsky) precision, touch and clarity of sound... refined virtuosity, the achievement of a long interpretive process.' Il Giornale D'Italia (Rome) ----- 'I loved your CD and thought your technique and performance were fabulous...' Rick Wakeman
