>A sinfully sultry mix of originals and standards'' is what JazzTrenzz reviewer Karl Stober had to say about composer/pianist Lisa Hilton's latest release, 'MIDNIGHT IN MANHATTAN', (Ruby Slippers Productions).  Inspired by a late New York night, she has once again created a recording full of evocative moods, strong melodies and expressive arrangements.  Creating a new band  for these sessions, 'Midnight In Manhattan' also features famed Brubeck saxman Bobby Militello, John Friday on drums and long time bassist Reggie McBride.  Eighteen-time Grammy winning engineer/producer Al Schmitt recorded and mixed with Hilton in Studio A/Capitol Studios keeping a natural sound that compliments the straight ahead tracks.

>Trained in contemporary and classical piano, Hilton contemplated jazz greats for inspiration.  ''I've always been inspired by the melodies of our great American songwriters of the 30's, the rhythmic hooks of classic jazz of the 50's and a bit of our blues from the South'' comments Hilton, ''but I do think that jazz can be inspired by this musical heritage and still sound cool today.''

>Hilton's music continues to earn numerous awards and honors.  Her music is distributed by Navarre and is available at most retail and online stores.  Her website is: www.lisahiltonmusic.com.
