SO MUCH FUN IN NYC!
It was great to see friends last week in NYC! Thank you to all who made it to our show last Thursday at Carnegie Hall – that was so much fun! (Yes I’m planning something for next January too!) We all enjoyed it – it was my favorite band show I have ever done, and we had a bit of audience participation going on too! It was very cool to finally play ESCAPISM live with those perfect Carnegie acoustics. Live music always makes you feel good – a real night of ESCAPISM! It was very cool to have a music lover come all the way from Luxembourg come to our NYC show! My next shows are:
2/8 SF JAZZ /San Francisco/8PM https://www.sfjazz.org/tickets/productions/lisa-hilton/
3/23 RAITT HALL/PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY/8PM https://arts.pepperdine.edu/events/community-events.htm
4/10/5PM BUDDY GUY’S LEGENDS: http://chicagolighthouse.org/event/jazz-night/ (come on, Chicago is always fun, right? And this is to benefit the amazing Chicago Lighthouse)
4/12 THE SMITHSONIAN/ 6PM/Nan McEvoy Auditorium https://americanart.si.edu/calendar/eventtrumbaEmbed=view%3Devent%26eventid%3D126586204 this show is FREE – how great is that? A FREE SHOW courtesy of the Smithsonian! This one is with JD Allen, Luques Curtis and Rudy Royston.
I really hope that you can make it to one of these shows – come and say hi!
I also want to also thank all radio stations that started playing our ESCAPISM right away too – 150+ stations across the world in 2 weeks with a #46 debut on JazzWeek. I guess Escapism is a pretty good title when so many people are getting bad weather – one radio host said that Escapism was “The Cure for Winter Blues” – I like that!
If you’re interested in shopping ESCAPISM is available on iTunes, Amazon or CDbaby or my website link is below. You can stream the music on all streaming platforms too.
Take care and stay safe and warm during this weather!
Happy Holidays, (or HOLIDAZE as the case may be),
Just in time for the Holidays my CD Escapism releases DECEMBER 1st! Yeah! My 20th release in 20 years! And yes, I do feel a wee bit overworked, but euphoric too. It is my passion, and I always feel extremely grateful when a new one is released – it really does feel a bit like a new child that you hope goes out into the world and makes a difference in others lives. This CD has myself on piano with JD Allen again on tenor sax, Gregg August on bass, Rudy Royston on drums and Terell Stafford on trumpet. Each CD has a different musical theme and ESCAPISM is about dealing with the challenges in life today by savoring the beauty and uplifting moments that are still there around us. You can get an idea of the energy of the music by the track titles: HOT SUMMER SAMBA, MELTDOWN, ANOTHER EVERYDAY ADVENTURE, TOO HOT, ON A CLEAR DAY, MOJAVE MOON, ZERO GRAVITY, ESCAPE VELOCITY BLUES, 29 PALMS, and UTOPIA CORNUCOPIA. Here is the just out video that was filmed in Joshua tree this month called Mojave Moon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lz8GApePLc Please share the video around!
CDs are available here my website and I also have sheet music and downloads for sale. The CDs are great as hostess gifts, teacher gifts, co-worker or “last minute” gifts. http://lisahiltonmusic.com/shop-1/ Of course you can always buy on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/escapism/id1300363720 or Amazon too: https://www.amazon.com/Escapism-Lisa-Hilton/dp/B075ZB7L5M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1511235882&sr=8- If you do get the CD and like it, please write a quick review on Amazon to help us out!
It’s still really early but here are a few reviews already out:
“Escapism blows open your mind and ears….this is a hot, happening date that charts a new course for pianist Hilton. Tasty jamming throughout. Well done.” Midwest Record
“Hilton is excitingly edgy during “Another Everyday Adventure” while showing her swinging digits on “Meltdown.” Her compositions are impressive… her own reading of “On A Clear Day,” is wonderfully dreamy. A Great Escape.” Jazz Weekly
“Hilton’s breadth of creativity and range of ideas are astounding as she reveals the virtuosity of her pianism, musicality and artful sound. Lisa Hilton has a lot to say. So listen. And then listen again.” Sounds of Timeless Jazz
“Truly unique compositions, flawlessly played. Regardless of the tempo, an inherent momentum informs Hilton’s music. Her left -hand has the pounding momentum and synergy of overtones that is so incredible. To say nothing of the right- hand improvising on a theme or taking off into absolutely unexpected and unpredictable places in such a beautiful way. Hilton & company are relentlessly in search of excellence, while achieving it with a frequency that leaves one in jaw-dropping awe.” Hugh “Hurricane” Carson, KVNF radio
“Hilton’s approach is fresh and uninhibited, taking musical paths less trodden and using expressive and unique chords.” Dee Dee McNeil/Musical Memoirs Jazz Journal
“A piano that seduces & captivates; a true passion in motion from the exquisite pianist Lisa Hilton.” Actual Jazz/Uruguay
Hoping You a Wonderful Holiday Season!
It’s definitely Spring Time!
In fourth grade I went on a field trip to collect wildflowers and just fell in love with them! So spring time is wildflower time for me: today I headed 2 hours north of Los Angeles to the Antelope Valley Poppy Preserve, which I’ve never visited before. What a great spot and a refreshing day. Really fun! You can see more photos on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lisahiltonmusic/
Thank you to everyone who came out to see the performances in NYC, Santa Monica, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Now on to CHICAGO CHICAGO CHICAGO: please try and come out APRIL 11TH/TUESDAY AT 5PM AT BUDDY GUY’S LEGENDS at 700 S. Wabash Avenue – tickets here: http://chicagolighthouse.org/event/jazznight/ A FUN NIGHT of jazz to support the wonderful work of The Chicago Lighthouse for People Who are Blind or Visually Impaired. It would be so nice to see a big crowd there – please share this event with all your friends and family in Chicago. This is my 7th Jazz Night for the Lighthouse and the last show of this tour – please note the venue change and early start time, (this was originally planned for Green Mill). HOPE TO SEE (AND HEAR!) ALL MY CHICAGO FRIENDS!!
It was nice to listen to the show that I did for STRAIGHT NO CHASER podcast with Jeffrey Siegel – great name for a jazz podcast don’t you agree? If you have a few minutes have a listen: “DAY & NIGHT allows Lisa Hilton to keep the spotlight for herself, and she does not disappoint. She has both the chops and soul to keep you constantly listening”. http://straightnochaserjazz.libsyn.com/podcast-565-a-conversation-with-lisa-hilton
If you’re a piano lover like I am this is a good website and a nice review for DAY & NIGHT: “Fully in command of her instrument, Hilton’s touch varies from deep, plush velvet to electrifying extended trills, glissandos and runs up and down the piano keyboard.” MainlyPiano.com http://mainlypiano.com/reviews/lisa-hilton-day-and-night
If you haven’t already, please check out my two albums from 2016: NOCTURNAL as well as DAY & NIGHT – links below.
Take care and enjoy the spring time!

Carnegie Hall was SO much fun. The piano was in excellent shape, the acoustics in Mrs. Carnegie’s former “salon” are perfect, and there was a really warm and enthusiastic audience to the new music from DAY & NIGHT. So many people braved the chilly 20 degrees to come out – many of them friends – and we had a really great time. There are a few more performance dates – if you missed the Carnegie show, (or just feel like coming again!), here are the dates and links and descriptions:

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
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
In case you missed them here are the videos that just came out for the album too:
