I replied quietly to a post by Ed McBride on this topic, but I think I 
need to comment to the list after reading so many reactions. The short 
version of the story is that t I had the pleasure of presenting Gonzalo 
Rubalcaba a couple of years ago.  It was one of those unfortunate 
nights that if something could go wrong, it did, and it was all on our 
end. If there was ever a reason for someone to walk out, this was the 

I wanted to point out that despite all of the roadblocks, Gonzalo 
remained the consummate gentleman and handled himself as a 
professional, and indeed, the show did go on.

Just wanted to speak up on his behalf.  I remain a fan personally and

it's only going to hurt his fanbase too.
there's nothing like asking someone out to a show, charging tickets to 
cc, spending an hour getting ready, going to dinner ahead of time, and 
showing up at the club only to find that the guy won't play because he

This week's sponsor: Lisa Hilton's MIDNIGHT IN MANHATTAN


A sinfully sultry mix of originals and standards'' is what JazzTrenzz 
Karl Stober had to say about composer/pianist Lisa Hilton's latest 
'MIDNIGHT IN MANHATTAN', (Ruby Slippers Productions).  Inspired by a 
late New
York night, she has once again created a recording full of evocative 
strong melodies and expressive arrangements.  Creating a new band  for 
sessions, 'Midnight In Manhattan' also features famed Brubeck saxman 
Militello, John Friday on drums and long time bassist Reggie McBride. 
Eighteen-time Grammy winning engineer/producer Al Schmitt recorded and 
with Hilton in Studio A/Capitol Studios keeping a natural sound that 
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 
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 
distributed by Navarre and is available at most retail and online 
stores.  Her
website is: www.lisahiltonmusic.com.
