Pianist, composer and producer Lisa Hilton’s 26th recording debuts her dynamic new L.I.L.O. Quartet featuring Trumpeter Igmar Thomas, Bassist Luques Curtis and Drummer Obed Calvaire. Hilton has performed with the in-demand bassist Luques Curtis regularly for several years, but the charismatic trumpeter Igmar Thomas is a compelling addition, complimenting Hilton’s fluid style and bluesy riffs. Obed Calvaire, who regularly works with SFJAZZ Collective as well as Wynton Marsalis, contributes considerable creativity to this cohesive band. Paradise Cove is a reference to our cultural need to find a ‘cove’ or protected spot in our personal lives on a daily basis to escape, revitalize, or reboot and to create a ‘paradise’ or state of grace amid today’s fast-moving times.
Tracks: Birks’ Works, Fast Time Blues, Blues Vagabond, Another Simple Sunday With You, Cha Cha Cha A’ La Carte, Mercurial Moments, Night Cap & a Little Chaos, Storybook Sequel, Mediterranean Dreams, What the World Needs Now is Love, Paradise Cove
