JAZZ: Traditional Jazz Combo, JAZZ: Piano Jazz
Musically inspired by her visits to Manhattan, Malibu based pianist/composer/producer Lisa Hilton recorded her ninth release in New York City, home to some of the greatest jazz musicians in the world. Joined by Christian McBride on bass, Lewis Nash on drums, Jeremy Pelt on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Steve Wilson on sax, Hilton seduces the listener with her beautiful melodies, thoughtful arrangements and strong performances from her band.
âI grew up listening to my mom playing Standards on the piano, so I inherited a love for an enduring melodyâ, Hilton explains. âImprovising is an exciting and inherent aspect of jazz, but our ears will always cherish an expressive melody, so thatâs something emphasizeâ. Besides Hiltonâs evocative piano soloing, âThe New York Sessionsâ includes some impressive playing by jazz royalty: McBride, Nash, Pelt and Wilson. âAs a producer and a player, these guys were my âDream Teamââ, comments Hilton.
Hilton teamed once again with eighteen-time Grammy Award winning engineer/producer, Al Schmitt. âAl can record a piano better than anyone else aliveâ, Hilton comments, âHeâs the best, and itâs been great for me to work with himâ. In composing, Hilton draws from many sources, âI love the melodies of our Great American Standards, and the rhythmic hooks of Classic Jazz, but Iâm influenced by classical and current music too â everything from Rock to Rachmaninoff can work!â Hilton says that in particular, Chick Coreaâs âCrystal Silenceâ, and the perennial favorite, âKind of Blueâ by Miles Davis were touchstones for her. âThose albums are beautiful, well played, challenging and still melodicâ, she muses, âand they continue to touch us over and over againâ.
