MOVIMENTIPROG (Italy) said of their debut CD "Between Miles Davis' "In A Silent Way ', Soft Machine's fourth album, and the seminal experiments of such composers as Gary Burton, and Larry Coryell, the Hillmen have created four pieces of instrumental music-like taking a long road trip to the past." Featuring two-time Grammy Award winner Alfonso Rodenas, Gayle Ellett and Mike Murray (Djam Karet), Todd Montogmery (Fernwood), and Peter Hillman on drums. Their CD is available on this website, and you can hear some of their music here.
