The New York Times has a double review from Nate Chinen covering Andrew Hill's recent trio concert and Nels Cline's concert honoring Hill:

"The pianist Andrew Hill makes music of deep reflection and patient discovery. For most of his long career he has stayed faithful to a mode of abstraction steeped in his own preoccupations: enigmatic harmony, elasticized rhythm, a multi-layered arrangement of texture and pulse. When he plays his own compositions — and he rarely plays anything else — he can create the impression of elusive and flickering beauty."

As referenced in the Times, There is a video oh Hill's performance streaming at the Trinity Church web site.
