ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The piano is my friend, my teacher and a passion which soothes my soul and seduces my senses. In composing, I mix my favorite blues, pop and classical styles for a contemporary solo piano sound which speaks to me of today's life. Listen for the whisper of an evening breeze, the splash of a mountain stream, and the rush of Friday's traffic. Listen for anger, acceptance, love, lust, pleasure, pain, and prayer. Now let the music move through you, and listen to the life we share".

A passionate pianist and a prolific composer, Lisa Hilton grew up in a very musical family. Her piano has been compared favorably to fellow pianists Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and George Shearing but her style is all her own. Hilton's beautiful melodies, catchy beats and emotionally played music appeals to listeners of all ages and is played on radio across the US as well as internationally.

Great Solo Piano Jazz!
“Seduction” is one of Lisa Hilton’s too rare solo piano albums (most of her recordings are jazz ensembles). Ensemble recordings are fine, and I enjoy a lot of them, but I love the intimacy of solo piano - especially from an artist with Lisa Hilton’s exceptional playing style. The music ranges from smooth ballads to mellow jazz to full-blown blues, and twelve of the thirteen tracks are original.

“Evening Song” opens the album on a quiet, peaceful note. Almost a lullaby, the gentle melody envelops the listener with warmth. Next is the slinky, down-and-dirty “Seduction,” which I first heard on Hilton’s more recent “Cocktails At Eight” CD. I really love this piece! “Close To My Heart” is a gentle ballad that has lyrics in the liner notes that are not sung on the recording, but you can always sing along! “29 Palms” is a dark, earthy piece with an interesting rhythm that slips a beat here and there, giving it an edge. I really like this one, too! “Angry Again” returns to the blues style that Hilton does so well. Lyrics for this song are also in the liner notes for those who are so inclined. They also explain why the music goes from fiery to conciliatory and pleading. The one cover tune is a straightforward arrangement of “The Way You Look Tonight.” It’s a really nice arrangement, but seems a little out of place. “Waterfall” is a beautiful, sparkling piece that’s a bit more abstract than some of the other pieces. The infectious rhythm suggests the flow of water while the right hand displays the more random splashes. This is also a favorite! “Desire” is slinky and sexy. “Remember” closes the album with a darkly introspective piece that is wistful, kind of sad, and very beautiful.

“Seduction” is a great album for active listening, but would also provide a sophisticated backdrop for other activities, a party, or an intimate dinner. Very enjoyable!
