Dave playing at his CD release gig at La Ve Lee Sept 29th, 2005.

Dave Hill is a guitarist's guitarist. He's also a composer, producer, music teacher and author. A highly sought-after session musician in the LA area, his debut solo album Two Seasons reveals many levels and when you listen to the music, you get the feeling you're getting to know the man. Brimming with epic-style songs, he bridges the worlds of contemporary and straight-ahead jazz... He steps into the spotlight and delivers a most impressive CD... A beautiful ensemble recording (read complete review).
D.J. Fazio, THE JAZZ NATION, February 2005

Blending the melodic sensibilities of smooth jazz with the feisty energy of fusion and a touch of trad-jazz swing, the veteran guitarist creates a joyful, improv-heavy jam that defies easy categorization. Playing his electric in a Wes Montgomery-influenced style, Hill creates a true musicianžs disc with some of the most innovative performers on the L.A. scene. With tunes that develop in frequently unexpected directions, each moment of this hour-long CD invokes a unique mood and vibe, displaying the kind of texture jazz fans will love.
Jonathan Widran, Music Connection Magazine, January 2005

I have known Dave Hill's playing for many years. He's on my Chopbuilder video and I also hired him to teach at L.A. Music Academy because I think his abilities as a player and a teacher are outstanding. He is one of the best "unknown" guitar players out there today. Check him out...

Hill's excellent guitar puts the cap on this excellent and well conceived eight track release.

Hill and his band displayed adeptness and astounding flair...A superb and boundless improviser.
Chris Walker- LA Jazz Scene (full review in November 2004 issue)

"Two Seasons" is an album not to miss... He plays wonderfully and his music will delight any smooth jazz fan. He has surrounded himself with top tier musicians whose playing greatly complements the guitar on the album.
