Playlist for May 18, 1998:
Timothy Hill and The Cucumbers appear, Victor Lovera disappears...

****This show is dedicated to the memory of my good friend and bandmate Victor Lovera, who passed after a long illness, 5/13/98****


*Denotes something from my collection

*Goods"This Is Your Lucky Day" (Victor Lovera)Herald

>Live performance by The Timothy Hill Trio<

Tim performs in a style I'll call "musical comfort food"--warm and very pleasant jazz-pop. He performs with David Hikes' Harmonic Choir, but recently has struck out on his own path, incorporating vocal acrobatics when it fits the song. Mr. Hill was joined by bassist Doug Weiss and George Javori on drums and "newspaper sticks." All three appear on Timothy Hill's new cd, "This Bright World."

  • "The Road is Home"
  • "Why I Need the Mercy"
  • "I'll Come Through for You"
  • "The Well"
  • "The Ballad of the Sad Young Man"
  • "After a Snowfall"
  • "Were You There (When They Crucified My Lord)" (trad.?)
Tim frequently performs at The Living Room (@Stanton & Allen Streets in Manhattan). To receive a schedule, send a note to The Living Room.

  • "Neighbors"
