“Hilton has an absolutely unique and beautiful sound. Bravo!!" KVNF Radio
Lisa Hilton, an award winning composer and acclaimed American jazz pianist, will perform new compositions recorded with this band of jazz luminaries. Hilton’s expressive and impressionistic compositions seamlessly explore jazz and blues alongside classical and modernist ideas - fueled by the inspiration of past composers Count Basie, George Gershwin, Robert Johnson or Chopin. Enjoy Allen’s explosive virtuoso displays, the dynamic details of Royston’s accents or the booming lines of Curtis’s bass alongside Hilton’s fluid piano in an impressive and beguiling show. The concept behind their new release Chalkboard Destiny is that our culture is continually being reshaped and creatively revised. Program includes: Sympathy for Blues, Rush Hour Rhapsody, Temporary Lullaby, Tropic of Tango and others. Hilton has been compared to some of the best jazz pianists in history in the book, The New Face of Jazz.
