Product Description

The New York Sessions is pianist/composer Lisa Hilton's ninth release to date. The twelve tracks are a combination of solo piano and ensemble pieces that feature the stellar lineup (Hilton's "dream team) of Christian McBride on bass, Lewis Nash on drums, Jeremy Pelt on brass, and Steve Wilson on sax. Following last year's "Midnight in Manhattan," this Malibu-based California girl seems to have found her muse in the Big Apple of late. Seven of the twelve tracks are original compositions, and the covers feature Hilton's infectious arrangements of music by Joni Mitchell, Ray Charles, Johnny Mandel, and Thelonious Monk.

Review

"A most impressive quintet ... and the results are downright brilliant! Hilton proves throughout the album that a beautiful melody can stand alone, and her improvisations weave a seductive combination of lyricism, warm sophistication and intelligent interpretation. From Joni Mitchell...to Monk.... to her own compositions...listen closely because Hilton's playing will touch your heart and even reach into your soul." --Eric Cohen, WAER Radio NY May 10, 2007

"Hilton has that certain something that takes her playing to a whole different level. Some of the most dazzling instrumental music to come along in a while. This is a piano player you have to get to know ". --Chris Spector, Midwest Record July 12, 2007

"The album is excellently produced...Punch those credit card numbers into your favorite online digital store and download some great piano chops". --Joe Montague Riveting Riffs July 17, 2007

"The New York Sessions" is pianist/composer Lisa Hilton's ninth release to date. The twelve tracks are a combination of solo piano and ensemble pieces that feature the stellar lineup (Hilton's "dream team) of Christian McBride on bass, Lewis Nash on drums, Jeremy Pelt on brass, and Steve Wilson on sax. Following last year's "Midnight in Manhattan," this Malibu-based California girl seems to have found her muse in the Big Apple of late. Seven of the twelve tracks are original compositions, and the covers feature Hilton's infectious arrangements of music by Joni Mitchell, Ray Charles, Johnny Mandel, and Thelonious Monk.

"The New York Sessions" begins and ends with Joni Mitchell's wonderful "Both Sides Now," a favorite from the later 1960's. Arranged for trio with Hilton, McBride, and Nash, the bittersweet tone of the song is beautifully communicated without words. "Over and Over" steps up the tempo considerably and brings in the whole ensemble, cooking up some spirited fun. "A Bit of Soul" by Ray Charles is a great blues piece with more than a little attitude. The band adds a New Orleans flavor that keeps the head bobbing and the toes tapping - good-time music! "Emily" by Johnny Mandel is a dreamy piano solo with a stream-of-consciousness kind of flow. Hilton started working on her signature piece, "Seduction," in high school, and it was the title track of her first CD (1997). It also appeared on "Cocktails at Eight"(2000) and "My Favorite Things" (2005), quite different each time. I still prefer the sultry solo piano version, but I love this piece in any form! "Where Are You Now" is a beautiful ballad, full of longing. Hilton gives the other musicians lots of room for their own interpretations of the piece. "Epistrophy" is a playful take on Thelonious Monk's theme song.

What a CD! Great recording, with sound quality that is hard to beat. This 5-piece combo is very talented, and really play fantastically together. Beautiful horn playing. Both versions of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" are wonderful, as are covers of Ray Charles and T. Monk.
