A Restful Day by Willie Hill

Durham, North Carolina, native Willie Hill incorporates his experiences as a soul and rhythm and blues musician into a reflective 10-track album, "A Restful Day."

And restful it is. The tracks on this album is a perfect gift to anyone wanting to unwind after a taxing, stressful day. Get away with the smooth sounds of "An Evening in Cannes" to the reflective vocals of Shawn "CoCo" McMillan in "Fly Away." His vocal range, along with other background singers, adds a sensual touch to the music.

What makes "A Restful Day" memorable is the music as well. The keyboards and drum programming makes the title track refreshing for soulful meditation.

Hill is an example of "hidden" jazz musicians who continue to develop stellar music, just waiting to be rediscovered.
