James Edward Hill James Edward Hill

James Hill is an award-winning Toronto-based pianist and composer. He is a member of multiple bands, most notably BADBADNOTGOOD and Autobahn Trio. As a co-leader he has released three albums with his band Autobahn Trio, and is currently working on a studio album with BADBADNOTGOOD. Further, Hill is near completing a solo piano project under his pseudonym Projectwhatever, which he intends to release in 2020. Hill is now touring internationally with BADBADNOTGOOD, while the release of his new self-led project titled LOCAL TALENT (December 13, 2019) quickly approaches. LOCAL TALENT is a trio of Canadian musicians Rich Brown, Ian Wright and Hill. The new album is titled Higienópolis, and was composed and inspired by a trip Hill took to Brazil. Higienópolis will serve as a debut for Hill as a solo artist and composer. Hill’s composition style, and approach to the piano, is rooted in jazz improvisation, but draws heavily from classical composition and pop-culture of the 90’s, an era which is incredible nostalgic for Hill.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
