"I love jazz. I like blues, bop, and boogie. I can take it straight ahead, or smooth; contemporary, traditional, or something in-between, even. The cool grooves, the instrumental moves, it's all good!
So join me and a few friends, as we play some of our favorites, old and new. Right now, is a great time to be 'In the Mood For Jazz'". Lisa Hilton

"Lisa Hilton is talented, tenacious and gorgeous - an excellent jazz/smoothjazz pianist and composer. She's satin and silk with a touch of denim. She's a warm summer breeze that soothes the canyons of your soul. She is rooted in tradition, yet she courts the infinite possibilities of tomorrow".
