Product Description

A safe haven pulsing with a West Coast cool energy is what the acclaimed pianist and award-winning composer Lisa Hilton has created with her new release, Oasis. Along with her smart and talented trio mates, bassist Luques Curtis and drummer Mark Whitfield Jr., they have delivered on that promise with a new album that is at times tender, yet emotionally intelligent, and well-conceived. On Oasis, Hilton notes that the album title refers to a place of refuge, and relief and realizing during the composing process that while she herself needed an antidote during these tumultuous times, others were seeking their own safe haven as well. The opening track, Twists of Fate surprises the senses with its cool laid back vibe laced with an energy related to the electricity of Thelonious Monk and Count Basie s best excursions in bop, with Hilton leaving plenty of aural room and Curtis and Whitfield laying down some incredibly arresting rhythms. Then the trio segues into the Horace Silver influenced, Adventure Lands. Compositions like the title track, Oasis, Watercolor World and Sunday Morning showcase the trio s collective ability to coalesce around an ethereal or, conversely, ecstatic moods; at times with washes of free jazz and cascading notes fluttering. The classic George Gershwin tune, Fascinating Rhythm now travels in some new directions with the supple grooves of Curtis and Whitfield as well as yielding the melody under Hilton s supple touch, and is a good companion to Hilton s Vapors and Shadows as well as the lively Just for Fun. Lazy Daisy is a slow blues for a sunny afternoon, though here with an impish twist mixing bluesy tones against simpler melodic ideas. Latin rhythms weave in and out of Hilton s compositions, and here are showcased on the fast paced Sunshine States. Warm Summer Night ends the album in a solo piano version awash in Americana.

Review

OASIS is freedom and lyrical art. It overflows with Hilton s somersaulting narrative, lyricism in every note, turning and churning in on itself expressed with thought, clarity, and the fusion of movement and texture. Hilton slips in a whirlwind of feeling in WATERCOLOR WORLD as a painter would to her canvas in splashes and spurts, behind your back. The composition unravels in ever-shifting threads, which she seems to brush and stroke back into a semblance of orderly life. Her aerial lifts bank up against contrasting, darker chords for that subtle textural context she s known for. --Festival Peak/ CarolBanksWebber

This award winner has gained the respect of an array of living legends, and she has worked alongside MANY. It all translates into extraordinary music that is compared to jazz and classical icons. Lisa Hilton is RARE. --Hybrid Jazz

Reliably exceptional that is how I would describe Lisa Hilton. ... Her composing and performance could be described as existing between impressionism and expressionism, but the one thing all her performances have is a heartbeat. Swinging-ly grounded in the beat she establishes is where Hilton s charm shines the brightest. --C. Michael Bailey/All About Jazz
