Artist: Hill Collective

Genre: Contemporary Jazz


Release date:

"Tonal Prophecy" is their first studio album, being released on the 20th April with the help of German label, Fin Du Monde. The sound is varied and rich, drifting from almost-big band horn arrangements to riotous free jazz. Latin rhythmic attitudes and playful excursions to the absurd lay out a tonal palette that brings both solace and revelation.

The inclusion of the "Grand Unison Choir" in the recording is an important statement of community and the DIY ethics that surround the album. A group of about 20 friends chant, laugh, scream and sing, embracing the full spectrum of what makes this music so magical.

Holistic in its ethos, this album explores the warmest depths of the mind, body and spirit while keeping things light and honest- a music that speaks for itself, about itself and the world around it.

The album sits comfortably in it's own vibrant identity greatly inspired by the idiosyncrasies of Sun Ra, Art Ensemble of Chicago and Ornette Coleman.

"Enthusiastically embracing the full gamut of freewheeling experimentation ... from wonky bossas to deranged swinging Mingus-ism, this new release from Hill Collective is a compelling refutation to anyone who still thinks that jazz is no fun"

Eddie Myer (New Generation Jazz / QOW Trio)

"Hill Collective seem at ease creating some of the boldest, bombastic and liberating music I have heard from any other release ... Fearless, passionate and deeply joyous"

Ozzy Moysey (Ancient Infinity Orchestra)
