Though she maintains some reservations about the implications of something as abstract as identity, Charlie Hilton, known up until now for her work in the band Blouse, has now forged a new one with her debut solo album, Palana. The album’s title itself is a nod to Hilton’s given Sanskrit name, an identity she shed completely after high school in favor of the androgynous “Charlie,” and Palana‘s overarching theme can be summed up by a quote from Hermann Hesse’s Steppenwolf, a phrase Hilton cites as a personal mantra: “Man is not by any means of fixed and enduring form…he is much more an experiment and a transition….”

Genre: Latin Jazz

Pianist Hilton Ruiz has had a very successful career in both jazz and Latin music. On this Tropijazz release, he combines the two styles to form a very likable brand of Latin jazz. Ruiz utilizes such sidemen as Tito Puente (playing vibes or timbales on three songs), flutist Dave Valentin, tenor saxophonist David Sanchez, trumpeter Charlie Sepulveda, trombonist Papo Vasquez, bassist Andy Gonzalez and three notable percussionists (Giovanni Hidalgo, Ignacio Berroa and Steve Berrios) for Latinized versions of four jazz standards and five group originals (including three by Ruiz). The music is quite catchy, danceable and reasonably challenging.

An old-style singer/crooner along the lines of Bing Crosby, Eddie Fisher and Perry Como, Ronnie Hilton was born Adrian Hill in Hull on the 26th of January, 1926. He left school aged only 14 to work in an aircraft factory during World War II before being called up into the Highland Light Infantry. After the war, he began working in a sewing-machine plant in Leeds, but singing was always his first love and he managed to get a second job, performing in the evenings with the Johnny Addlestone Band at the club the Starlight Roof.

In 1992 the most artistically brilliant pianist able to blend the American musical styles, especially Afro-Cuban jazz and bebop, with mambo was Hilton Ruiz (New York, 1952 to 2006), who had worked with figures as Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson or Dizzy Gillespie. Between 1980 and 2000 Hilton led his own band that recorded eighteen albums as a leader, including this one, which led to an update of the status of dance music with Cuban roots in New York. Hilton, playing the piano, was accompanied by several of the most prominent Latin musicians such as percussionists Steve Berrios, Ignacio Berroa and Giovanni Hidalgo, bass Andy Gonzalez, trumpeter Charlie Sepúlveda, tenor saxophonist David Sánchez and trombonist Papo Vázquez. It is the instrumental version of mambo in Latin jazz during 90s.

This CD is a success on all levels. For this Latin jazz date, the rhythm section's power and energy constantly inspire the horn soloists. Tenor saxophonist George Coleman is in top form, altoist Kenny Garrett gets in his licks and flutist Dave Valentin, whose playing was often a bit watered down on his own GRP releases, takes what may be his finest recorded solo on "Cuchi Cuchi." Not to be overlooked is Ruiz's McCoy Tyner-inspired piano, which fuels the rhythm section and really pushes the horns. Ruiz wisely chose nine superior songs to perform, including several rarely heard in this type of setting.

Genre: Jazz | Label: Ruby Slippers Productions

Pianist Lisa Hilton has made an art out of balancing the simple and complex. Her work speaks with extreme clarity and serves as a benchmark for a less-is-more style of piano playing that appeals to a wide swath of listeners, but it isn't plain-Jane jazz. Hilton has a way of taking a basic idea and stretching its conceptual fabric to the breaking point. Singsong ideals are twisted, contorted and distorted, and rhythmic ideas are pulled out of focus, blurring the firm-time realities that actually exist underneath it all. This form of musical cunning helped to make Underground (Ruby Slippers Productions, 2011) and American Impressions (Ruby Slippers Productions, 2012) so intriguing, and it serves Getaway just as well.

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.
