Lisa Hilton Performs Music from the album entitled “Oasis.”
Award winning American composer and acclaimed pianist Lisa K. Hilton will be performing new compositions from her latest release, entitled OASIS – which is defined as: Something serving as a refuge or relief. Hilton’s expressive and impressionistic compositions explore the soundscape of jazz and blues alongside classical and modernist ideas fueled by the inspiration from past composers Count Basie, Horace Silver, George Gershwin, Robert Johnson as well as Rachmaninoff. Hilton has performed at venues across the US from the legendary Carnegie Hall to the historic Green Mill in Chicago and is known for her warmth and storytelling on stage, as well as her expressive technique at the piano. “One of the finest composers working in Jazz today.” – Jazz Notes
With an ingratiating personality and amazing voice, Nikki George embodies the versatility of jazz. She began her musical career in Chicago and has performed in New York, Florida, and Europe. Her work has aired on Chicago stations, like WRRG and WNUA, and she has also appeared on WGN and WYIN television. The Chicago Tribune had the following praise for Nikki George: “sensational, electrifying…and an obviously accomplished singer.”
