I really hate correcting Dick LaPalm, but unless there's been a recent
transaction, Island is owned by Universal.

Russell,
In either '75 or '76 Island Records released an absolutely extraordinary
album by Nick Drake entitled "Bryter Layter".  Island, I believe, is now
owned by BMG which would be a good starting point for your friend.

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

-------------------------------------------

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.
