> SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A few teenagers at the Mormon church-based

> for Youth summer camps mistakenly were given rap CDs with profane lyrics
> instead of discs of inspirational music.

> The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints apologized for the mix up,
> which happened last month.

> "The content on the erroneous CD does not reflect the standards of the
> church nor what we support at EFY," Gregory M. Tanner, director of Church
> Educational Systems' youth programs, wrote in a July 7 letter that was
> mailed to roughly 23,000 parents. "It is the furthest from the type of

> More than 20,000 copies of "The Greatest Gift," a Mormon church-produced

> to 18 at Especially For Youth camps across the country, a program run by
> Brigham Young University.
>
> But at least four campers were given Paul Wall and Judge Dredd's "Hometown
> Dreamin," which comes with a "parental advisory" sticker, BYU spokeswoman
> Carri Jenkins said Wednesday. Another six received a CD of jazz music.
>
> The erroneous CDs, which were produced by Utah County-based Media Fast,

> "There are probably a few more out there that we're not aware of," said

>
> Media Fast manager Bart Howell said the discs were manufactured by an
> out-of-state vendor hired by his company.
>
> The company is investigating the mix up and has examined its remaining
> inventory of the CDs for Especially For Youth to make sure the mistake
> doesn't happen again, he said.

> 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.
