Wonderful Reviews for “Day & Night” CD!
REVIEWS FOR DAY & NIGHT “Closer scrutiny reveals nuanced choices and numerous unforeseen turns. Hilton, brings an emotionalism to the simplest of ideas; layers of depth appear when you least expect them.” Jeff Tamarkin/Jazz times “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 – […]
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 […]
THANK YOU RADIO EVERYWHERE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
I just wanted to SHOUT a very grateful THANK YOU RADIO for your incredible support for DAY & NIGHT. I was composing for this last spring right after I broke my shoulder (all recovered now), and so there is an extra sense of thankfulness that this album is connecting so well with listeners in this tumultuous year we’re having so far. I do think it’s very healing music. Let me know if I’ve missed anyone, ok? Thank you for your […]
Hope you might be able to come to one of these….
Hi there! 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 […]

Although the album has only been out a few days, I’ve gotten a few nice reviews already: “What is evident […]

Reviews for NOCTURNAL
NOCTURNAL REVIEWS: Lisa Hilton/piano, Terell Stafford/trumpet, JD Allen/sax, Gregg August/bass, Antonio Sanchez/drums “No one plays, writes of puts together a band better than Hilton. Another in a growing list of deep excellent works from Hilton.” Russ Davis/Voice of America/Jazz America with 134,000,000 listeners Hilton has, “Melodic gifts and song-form clarity as both a composer and player. Beauty of all sorts is abundant here.” Jeff Simon/Buffalo News “The album allows Hilton to demonstrate her mastery of the keyboard. While her compositions […]
Hello and Happy Spring! I realize that not everyone is getting spring time weather yet – I do wish everyone luck through any “spring” storms. It’s been wetter in the west than the last 5 years, so that’s a good thing for us. The meteorologists are still hoping for a “Miracle in March” – meaning MORE rain, but the west has made a lot of forward progress on drought recovery. Yeah! My news? NOCTURNAL continues to do well at radio […]
