Hi David, I am not aware of what happened at the Regattabar, but I am sure 
you had your reasons to call him that way. I would, just in case, avoid do 
it on his face, because thinks could get 'lost in the translation' and 
therefore out of hand.

Best Regards,

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.
