Hilton Ruiz, whose life ended in tragic circumstances in New Orleans in 2006 was a hugely talented and popular artist. From his solo work to the now legendary duets with the late Major Holley, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Tito Puente, Symphony orchestras, and the various aggregations of his own, Hilton was a master of many styles. When it came to caressing the ivories, Ruiz had the class of Erroll Garner and Noro Morales with the sophistication of Duke Ellington and Ernesto Lecuona all wrapped up into one. You'll hear these elements and more when listening to this album including the explosive rhythm section of Andy Gonzalez on bass, Steve Berrios on drums, Giovanni Hidalgo on congas and percussion, and tenor saxophonists David Sanchez and Peter Brainin.
