OLETA ADAMS April 21st CD Release "Let’s Stay Here"
Since the runaway success of her 1990 debut album Circle of One (which went Platinum), and the impassioned hit single "Get Here" (the Brenda Russell composition that became an unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War) Oleta Adams has inspired a growing legion of fans in the U.S. and Europe with journeys of the heart via songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music.
Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt arrived in New York in 1998 after graduating from Berklee College of Music. Soon he started being noticed by a lot of top musicians in the city. His first professional Jazz gig was playing with the Mingus Big Band. That gig led to many long lasting associations with many of the talents in the band, and a great opportunity for growth.

"Lisa Hilton has been compared to some of the best pianists in history, such as Bill Evans and Brad Mehldau..." Cicily Janus
Lisa Hilton is driven to compose. While she plays at the highest level, the driving force of her art is inside her superbly dynamic compositions. They surge with ideas, and emotion. Hilton refers to her instrument, the piano, as her true “voice” – the way she speaks and connects. “When I play, I’m communicating our world through the notes,” Hilton muses.
