Sad day in the world today.  There were rumors in NYC that he was dying.  When he performed 
in Durham, NC, last year, he didn't well at all.  Peace go with you brother!

> "Lisa Hilton has topped herself on 'Underground.' She's never played, written or expressed herself better as an artist. This is living adventurous jazz that breathes fresh but at the same time is rooted in the best parts of the past- and always deeply emotive. Surrounded by some of the finest musicians working today, Hilton hits the mark on every cut. She's joined the ranks of her own contemporary heroes." Todd Steed/WUOT
> 
> "Shimmering and spacious. Though not as well known as her session mates, Hilton easily holds her own during these performances, and her compositions clearly inspire all concerned." Mike Joyce/Jazz Times
