    Lisa Hilton

    Presented by at The Red Room at Cafe 939

    November 6, 2012


    Lisa Hilton

    One of the most distinctive and instantly recognizable composers and pianists in jazz today, Lisa Hilton has honed her evocative, individualistic and impressionistic sound paintings for over a decade as a leader. Like Dave Brubeck and Bill Evans, her imagistic compositions draw as deeply on the classical tradition and the avant-garde as much as they look back to jazz greats like Thelonious Monk and Duke Ellington. Hilton's approach is nuanced, and expressive, her compositional style thorough and painterly, her touch on the keyboard alternately tender, brooding, emotive, yet methodically cerebral. Over the course of her creative career, the "Lioness of Jazz" has played with many of this era's jazz luminaries, releasing a total of fourteen albums, (over 170 iTunes tracks). "I love the Red Room and look forward to returning this fall with new music to share".
