Composer/pianist/band leader Lisa Hilton has completed her eighteenth jazz piano release, NOCTURNAL with her most impressive band to date – Hilton again on keys, with Antonio Sanchez/drums, Terell Stafford/trumpet, Gregg August/bass and J.D. Allen on tenor sax. It will be released January 22th, 2016. The eleven instrumental tracks show a remarkable emotional depth, evocative impressions and clarity from all band members with plenty of moments with virtuosity. For lovers of tradition, the title track Nocturnal, Whirlwind and the classic, Willow Weep for Me allow for Stafford’s fluid trumpet and flugelhorn and Allen’s husky tenor tone to shine. The Latin flavored, A Spark in the Night, showcases Sanchez and August and their extensive Latin backgrounds in a catchy and appealing way, while Twilight is impressionistic. A surprise choice is The Pixies’ Where is my Mind – so simply stated then turning in another direction by the finale. It’s on the bluesy Seduction and the tender An August Remembered that Hilton’s flowing lines and composition ideas are highlighted. Also included is Hilton’s Midnight Sonata for piano, bass and drums: I. Symphony of Blues II. Desire and III. Midnight Stars. “I have 200+ tracks on iTunes that I have composed or arranged,” Hilton explains, “and felt inspired to create a larger work of music now. Midnight Sonata merges a classical format with the freedom of American jazz and blues in a method I refer to as trans-genre. Many of our great American composers composed in classical forms that I have been inspired by: George Gershwin, Duke Ellington and Dave Brubeck to name a few. It was intellectually challenging as well as being a lot of fun.” While the sonata form is in tact, Hilton used improvisation, blues, modal washes, shifting key centers, free jazz, impressionism and extended technique in creating a refreshing yet familiar vibe. THIS ALBUM HAS A STREET DATE OF JANUARY 22, 2016.
