Happy New Year!
I hope you had some good times over this holiday season. It’s been busy but fun for me in SoCal. It’s unusual and very exciting to have a new CD and a show coming up at Carnegie Hall January 10th, 2017 as well! https://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2017/1/10/0800/PM/Lisa-Hilton-Piano/
DAY & NIGHT now heads to radio with an add date of 1/2/2017.
Although the album has only been out a few days, I’ve gotten a few nice reviews already:
“What is evident is the aura that underlies and overlays the album – it is attention-getting and subtly strong and drawing you in. I felt enveloped in what I realized was a perfectly seamed performance. Virtuosity aside, Hilton has imbued this succession of songs with so much nuance – so much extension of incredibly phrased riffs – that take the song places that are so unexpected that one is left simply awestruck by beauty”. Hugh Carson/KVNF Radio
“Day & Night just might be the tonic this nation needs…everyday treasures that strengthen the bonds of humankind are intrinsic to the music of Lisa Hilton.” AXS/Carol Banks Weber http://www.axs.com/lisa-hilton-s-upcoming-day-night-nurtures-power-of-love-110294 There are more shows coming in February too.
“Hilton is in player in full command of the nuances of her instrument. Her approach is a welcome expanse of dynamics and tonal variety, enabling her to conjure aural pictures in a richly impressionistic style. Memorably resonant original songs….and gentle pianistic fireworks.” George Kanzler/Hothouse Jazz Guide January – page 10. http://hothousejazz.com/index.php
“Lovely Album!” WUNH Radio
