"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.

Brazilia - featuring saxophonists Greg Abate, Dan Moretti and an All Star Band

Rhode Island jazz legends Dan Moretti and Greg Abate have had very divergent jazz careers after releasing over a dozen CD’s each.  Both saxophonists have toured the world sharing their love of music through performing and education.  Although they have walked their own paths for all these years when they come together there is a strong connection that makes the musical energy explode.  Greg has always held fast to his be-bop roots whereas Dan has ventured into different jazz related styles including Latin-Jazz and other ethnic blends.
