“A DEFINITE WEST COAST COOL VIBE" ALL ABOUT JAZZ

PRESS

“One of those artists that when you go through her catalog of music you say to yourself which one do I post on? Starting from the almost classical to the contemporary and every bop of jazz, then those very talented fingers dip into the realm of blues. Melodic and tantalizing… and at times mesmerizing.”

LongShotBlues

 

“Forget all of the piano sensations that are out there – the best newer voice out there lives in Malibu: Lisa Hilton…..The whole disc has an ambience that draws you in while swinging with emotion.  The band shows its chops… thoughtful and well crafted from start to finish, this is a must have for jazz fans.
