Lisa Hilton: Transparent Sky (album review by Christa V.)

Hilton delivers a masterful album with this creation. The trio of her on piano, Luques Curtis on bass, and Rudy Royston on drums locks in so tight to the music, yet gives every piece room to breathe. Every song sounds so well put together, and yet they all have a lightness that threatens to whisk the listener away. “Nightingales and Fairy Tales” is an exquisite example of this where the music sounds wistful and dreamy. “God Bless the Child” is one of few covers, rather than an original, but Hilton brings new life and energy to the classic hit. And the title track that closes out the album brings the whole creation together. It’s a wonder that Hilton hasn’t reached a larger audience; don’t let this album pass you by.  Favorite tracks: 3, 5, 10
