HORIZONS: Lisa Hilton and her Band Explore Nature Through Sound, Melody and Improvisation
“Every day I see so much beauty and truth in nature…” acclaimed composer/pianist Lisa Hilton writes about her latest release, Horizons. “By exploring these ideas musically, we hope to have created a sense of expansiveness, depth, beauty and hope.” Horizons, out April 7 in a twelve track CD or ten track vinyl release, features exceptional performances from the deep tenor sax of J.D. Allen, the clarion trumpet of Sean Jones, the fluency of Julliard trained Gregg August on bass and the ever inventive Rudy Royston on drums along with Hilton’s evocative piano. Hilton and her band bring a playlist of jazz styles inspired by Count Basie, Horace Silver or Duke Ellington, but also including covers of the Mancini classic, "Moon River" and the Black Keys, "Gold on the Ceiling" as well as nine of Hilton's compositions. Horizons is out in a twelve track CD or ten track vinyl version on Amazon, CDBaby as well as downloads at iTunes and is distributed by Alliance Entertainment.
