Ruby Slippers, 2015, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Lisa Hilton is a jazz pianist that continues to impress us. Horizons is her latest release and again she surrounds herself with world-class musicians. J.D. Allen (sax), Sean Jones (t), Gregg August (b) and Rudy Royston (d) make this session pop! The music flows with a happy spirit through the entire 12-song set. “The Sky and The Ocean” and “Lazy Moon” are examples of the harmony between the musicians. Hilton makes music that is good listening with heartfelt engagement from her entire team.
