Event info

On her latest LP Baby, I’m Hollywood, Judith Hill unveils an ambitious, kaleidoscopic document detailing
her journey of self-discovery. The 13-track record is set for release in February 2021; it´s a vibrant, defiant
personal statement, a thorough excursion into the annals of Black music: past, present and future. Rich in
throwback soul, stunning piano balladry, and swaggering psychedelic funk, the self-produced Baby, I’m
Hollywood finds Hill liberated, focused and reborn. Bolstered by a spirited live band and her new attitude,
she ruminates on pleasure, pain, celebration, and consequences, all of which inform this collection of
finely-crafted stories-in-song.
“I wanted to personify Hollywood as a woman who’s a survivor. In my career, I’ve been through so many
peaks and valleys, and the show must go on. The message is being persistent, bringing all of your pain
and your story to the stage”, notes Hill.
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, Judith Hill comes from a Japanese/African-American bi-racial musical
family. Mother Michiko and father Robert (aka Pee Wee) met in a 1970’s funk band, and continue to
perform in Judith’s backing ensemble, their contributions heard all over Baby, I’m Hollywood. After
graduating from Biola University with a degree in Music Composition, Hill took off for France in 2007 to
join French superstar Michel Polnareff’s touring band. Inspired upon returning to the States, Judith
embarked on a meteoric ascent to soul singer, songwriter, and badass bandleader.
In a prolific, decade-long dream sequence, the singer collaborated with iconic artists across multiple
platforms, genres and mediums. Hill was selected to duet with the late Michael Jackson on "I Just Can´t
Stop Loving You" during his This Is It concerts in London. After his sudden passing in June 2009, Hill
sang lead on a number at Jackson´s memorial service, putting her on the worldwide map in an instant.
Judith’s rise to fame is explored in 20 Feet from Stardom, the documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman,
where her performances helped win a Grammy for Best Music Film.
Hill was wildly-popular on the fourth season of hit TV show The Voice, she’s worked with filmmaker Spike
Lee, and sang on the official soundtrack to major motion pictures Dr. Seuss´ The Lorax and Happy Feet
Two. Hill contributed to jazz luminary George Benson´s tribute to Nat King Cole. Among other high-profile
engagements, Judith was drafted as direct support on arena tours for both John Legend and Josh
Groban. The latter invited Hill onstage each night to perform duets, before the pair released the single
“Remember When it Rained”.
After discovering the singer on Revolt TV, where she spoke aloud her wish to work with him, Prince
summoned Hill to his famed Paisley Park compound. Together they recorded her debut full-length solo
album Back in Time, a promising project that the dearly-departed genius both produced and played on.
Hill received much critical acclaim in the aftermath of the record’s 2015 release; a couple of years later
she followed up with a self-produced sophomore LP, Golden Child.
In addition to her prodigious list of collaborators, Judith namechecks an eclectic smattering of inspiration
and influence, including Frederic Chopin, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Tata
Vega, the Clark Sisters, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Wonder. One can pick up on their nuanced expressions
within the fabric of her sound and style. Yet on Baby, I’m Hollywood, the singer arrives right on time,
proudly cut from her own cloth, and firmly entrenched in her funkadelic universe.
“Baby I´m Hollywood is about acceptance.... coming to terms with my story and unapologetically stepping
into who I am. I want to bring people inside MY soul and help them see past the makeup, stage lights,
rumors, and history.....To step out of the shadows of fear and into the light of vulnerability,” said Hill Judith Hill’s fantastic voyage springs to life on the title track’s freewheeling 60’s soul revue. “Americana" is
a syncopated stomp that boasts 808 high-hats and an iridescent soundscape. “You Got the Right Thang”
and “Step Out” channel psychedelic 70’s funk, with subtle nods towards Minneapolis. Plus potent blends
of smokey soulful blues, sizzlin’ R&B slow jams, stirring Gospel-swells and crunchy guitar grooves, all
masterfully sewn together by Hill’s scintillating vocals and enigmatic personality.

Plan route

Im Mai 2000 eröffnete im Keller eines alten Speichergebäudes in Münster, der Hot Jazz Club. Das Lokal fügt sich perfekt in seine kreative Umgebung ein, denn er befindet sich mitten in dem für Kulturzwecke umgebauten Teil des Binnenhafens der Stadt.

Neben traditionellen Jazz- und Blues-Konzerten treten hier auch Musiker aus den Bereichen Funk, Soul, Rock, Pop, Reggae, Ska, elektronischer Musik, sowie Grenzgänger der verschiedenen Genres auf. Dabei sind neue und experimentelle Einflüsse ein wichtiger Bestandteil des Programms. Außerdem ist die Nachwuchsförderung ein großes Anliegen des Clubs. Im Rahmen der „Newcomer Stage“, wird jungen Bands, Schüler- und Schul-Big Bands jeden dritten Dienstag im Monat die Möglichkeit geboten, sich der Öffentlichkeit zu präsentieren und erste Bühnenerfahrungen zu sammeln. Feste Veranstaltungsreihen uns Sessions runden schließlich das Programm ab.

Der Andrang auf den Hot Jazz Club ist groß! Ob sich die Gäste nun zum Tanzen einfinden, um mitreißenden Bands zu lauschen oder einfach nur gutes Essen in einer angenehmen Atmosphäre zu genießen; regelmäßig ist das Lokal rappelvoll! Trotzdem kommt hier keine Hektik auf, das Personal bleibt stets freundlich, das Publikum entspannt - Großartige Voraussetzungen für einen gelungenen Abend!
