The Day the World Stood Still is an album by American jazz pianist Andrew Hill, a live album recorded in Sweden and Denmark in 2003 and released on the Danish Stunt label.[1] Hill was awarded the 2003 Danish Jazzpar Prize and the album was drawn from a series of concerts to celebrate and showcase Hill's work, featuring his regular trio augmented with guests from Europe.

Reception[edit]

The All About Jazz review by Rick Bruner stated "Andrew Hill seems to be a point of triangulation connecting Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk with the free jazz concepts of the sixties. His highly original musical palette is expanded beautifully by this group of highly talented European reed and brass players".[2]
