More Than Another Day, the latest release from composer/pianist/producer Lisa Hilton opens up with the title track showcasing the creative range of Hilton and her trio. Seamlessly moving through diverse rhythmic ideas, genres and eras, Rudy Royston (drums) and Luques Curtis (bass) provide stellar additions to Hilton’s nine compositions and one cover tune. The trio powers through the upbeat and swinging “Retro Road Trip”. With its groovy riffs, this might just be the feel good track you’ve been waiting for. “Secret Beach”, “Karma Chaos” and Cole Porter’s “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, all exude refreshing Latin ideas. “Blues & Beauty” captures the moods we’ve been encountering this year with Hilton’s expressive and bluesy piano, but also surprises the listener with serenity and beauty as well. The ballads, “No Sleep Until…”, “Today I Looked At Love” and “So This Is Love” give the album a rich balance of emotions and harmonic colors as well. This is music for today, for this year, and of course, for More Than Another Day.
