What kind words…..

Hi there,

What kind words have been coming in from all around the world for the new album DAY & NIGHT.  Wow!  Thank you all!  It’s quite touching to a musician to see their art connect with music lovers from New Hampshire to Argentina to Russia.  As an independent artist I really appreciate these connections. Thank you for listening.

There is still time to buy tickets for my show in San Francisco, but it looks like they might sell out of this event, so please share with your friends in case they might want to go this Friday March 10th, at 8pm.  It is such a great/hip neighborhood for dinner or drinks as well as a fantastic venue at SF Jazz Center: https://www.sfjazz.org/events/lisa-hilton-solo-piano-day-night


“Fantastic new CD from Lisa Hilton. We love her version of Begin The Beguine.” Toppy Jazz the #1 Jazz Station in Europe

“Solo piano jazz…Lisa Hilton owns this art brilliantly: soft touch, subtle but very significant swing, a deep connection with the jazz tradition – especially the blues, and of course the beauty of the execution.” Jazz Quad/Russia

“Hilton returns with another CD of solo piano, beautifully played and expressive.” KZSU Radio Stanford University

“Rich with elegance and energy, with refined technique, performances and interesting improvisation.” Animajazz/Italy

 “Hilton’s playing is quite lovely.” WTJU Radio

 “Beautiful – I’m speechless 5 out of 5 rating.” SURF RADIO/Hossegor, France

 “One of my favorite jazz pianists.”  FM URIQUIZA/Argentina

 “Lovely Album!  Some of the nicest music I’ve heard this year.” WUNH Radio

“DAY & NIGHT is her best yet… wonderful work!” 2MAXFM/AUSTRALIA

 “Straight and well produced solo piano.  Always well done!”  WRTC

  “I have liked this artist for many years.” CKIA/Quebec City/Canada

 “Hilton’s music is sweet & full of life.” ANUHEA REFRESHING JAZZ/Hawaii

 “I was immediately drawn into her music.”  Center Stage with Pamela/WGCH

“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

 “Beautiful sound.” BondiFM NSW/Australia                             

 “Keyboard lust.” MGZC Radio/NC

 “Expressive, eloquent compositions and playing.” Grey Lock Glass Podcast

For Day & Night “Hilton delves into her own songbook to create more deep brush strokes to her works of art.  A strong addition to an already impressive portfolio.”  George Harris/JazzWeekly

“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.”  Hothouse Jazz Guide

“Letting it fly with just jazz piano ace Lisa Hilton front & center, you really get a chance to appreciate what a killer pianist she is. Tasty stuff that’s a great centerpiece to her canon.”  Midwest Record

 “Pure passion in motion…”  Jazz Quarterly: TasteMaker Honors               

“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

 “Hilton explores music as art and paints texture and color through jazz approaches.  Her originals convey many of Cole Porter’s compositional integrity.”  Sounds of Timeless Jazz/Paula Edelstein

 “Soothing yet complex solo piano music.  Hilton likes to spread the wealth of her influences from the simplistic one-note three-times-fast like Count Basie or the meanderings of the complex jazzer Horace Silver.” Classical Lite

 “It takes a very talented and confident artist to record a complete album as a soloist. In the spotlight Hilton’s  fingers race around the keys, demanding the best from all the notes.” Musical Memoirs Jazz Blog/Dee Dee McNeil
