From the Artist:
Acclaimed and award winning composer/pianist Lisa K. Hilton debuts new compositions from her 20th release, ESCAPISM. Hilton will swing through her compositions inspired by great American composers such as Miles Davis, Count Basie and Horace Silver. Her expressive and impressionistic compositions explore the soundscape of jazz and blues alongside classical and modernist ideas. ESCAPISM follows Hilton’s musical explorations to savor uplifting moments and abundant beauty in refreshing ways. ESCAPISM includes these song titles: Hot Summer Samba, Meltdown, Another Everyday Adventure, Too Hot, On A Clear Day, Mojave Moon, Zero Gravity, Escape Velocity Blues, 29 Palms, and Utopia Cornucopia.
Hilton, brings an emotionalism to the simplest of ideas; layers of depth appear when you least expect them.
