Sunny Day Theory
Ruby Slippers – 1008
Sounds of Timeless Jazz
The power of creativity comes from many sources however, Lisa Hilton has tapped the depths of her soul to create an impressive recording titled SUNNY DAY THEORY. The lovely pianist is joined by Larry Grenadier on bass, Lewis Nash on drums and Brice Winston on tenor sax on 12 fresh tracks that will leave you feeling an even greater love for the art of jazz improvisation.
Her songs are filled with deep emotions that give her trio plenty to sink their chops into. Dense voicings, complex rhythms, and unique figures give the arrangements outstanding opportunities for ensemble interplay and exchanges that not only challenge the trio but welcome the listener inside of the songs.
Top picks are “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” the opening mambo titled “Heat Wave,” “After The Fire,” “Sunny Day Theory,” and “Malibu Morning.” Hilton’s piano virtuosity is absolutely stunning.
