Product Description

"A lot of people tell me that they love jazz, but are confused at times as to what jazz to buy, so I have put together a collection of everyone's favorites - from jazz classics to movie themes, even beloved childhood tunes, with some new music that I think you'll like too. I've included some to the greatest jazz songs of all times from the best composers, and the band and I had a wonderful time playing them. This album is really for you - and I hope it will become one of your favorite things!" Lisa Hilton

Format: Audio CD
"My Favorite Things" is a collection of "everyone's favorites - from jazz classics to movie themes with new music I think you'll like, too," recorded and arranged by pianist Lisa Hilton and her jazz ensemble. Eight of the fourteen tracks are Hilton's originals, including "Seduction," which has appeared on a couple of Hilton's previous albums (a knockout piece!). On some of Hilton's previous ensemble albums, I thought the piano was too much in the background, but that's not the case with "My Favorite Things." Hilton lets her fellow bandmates (Eric Marienthal on sax and flute, Tal Bergman on drums, and Reggie McBride on bass) shine, but the piano takes the lead on most of the tracks on this album. Hilton's classy, fluid jazz stylings are easy to listen to and enjoy both in the foreground and as a backdrop for other activities.

The CD opens with "Let's Go!," one of Hilton's compositions. Energetic and upbeat, this piece really moves. "My Favorite Things" is a silky-smooth arrangement of the Rogers and Hammerstein classic, played a bit darker than you usually hear it, but it works well, and there is a beautiful interplay between piano and sax. "Take Five" is the Paul Desmond classic made popular by Dave Brubeck - a really tasty arrangement. "Midnight Sky" is another Hilton original - cool, dark and mysterious - I like it! "Desafinado" is another silky take on a jazz classic - flowing, warm, and contented. Hilton and company give "Alfie" a feeling of longing and sadness - an ideal slow dance! "Clearly" is the only solo piano track on this album, and it's a sweetly reflective gem. Like many of Hilton's fans, I think her "Seduction" is one of her best pieces. Talk about slinky! The sax gives the piece even more of an attitude and adds to the fun.

Lisa Hilton is Jazz music's hidden gem. The Malibu, California resident has worked with many of genre's greatest professionals. Her previous CD's I reviewed were highly recommended with Hilton receiving plenty of airplay. Her latest CD, "My Favorite Things" continues the formula she develops, mixing American standards to her original compositions and having musician extraordinaires such as Saxophonist, Eric Marienthal. Hilton does wonders on classics such as Jobim's, "Desafinado" The Gershwin brothers', "They Can't Take That Away From Me" and Paul Desmond's, "Take Five". Her latest original compositions are very good. "Seduction/remix" is clearly the best track on this CD with its soulful beats and nice sax playing. It's hard for me so say it, but there were a few misses on this CD. I wasn't sure about the track, "Midnight Sky". It seemed to out of place in the track selection. Despite the slight flaw, this CD is still a wonderful listen. Recommended.
