Jazz Tones Insights - Lisa Hilton

Mar 11, 2018

Join me Sunday, March 11 for Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK between 3:00 PM until 7:00 PM.   I interview Pianist and classically-trained Composer Lisa Hilton.  Her latest release, Escapism, focuses on and savors the beauty that still surrounds us.   Lisa states that "I compose much like abstract or non-figurative painters - expressing musically and emotionally so the audience connects with the experience when songs are performed". 

This week’s show is out of this world! UPFRONT talks to the star of Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time – Storm Reid. The 14-year-old actress opens up about her character, lessons that she learned from the film’s director Ava DuVernay and more.

UPFRONT also talks exclusively to A Wrinkle in Time lead hairstylist Kim Kimble. The hair and beauty guru discusses the looks she created for the film’s stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling. She also celebrates Women’s History Month by giving us her top seven hair  divas.

Tessa Thompson and Whoopi Goldberg are teaming up for a new comedy titled Furlough.   In the film, Thompson stars as a young woman who lives with and cares for her aging mother (Goldberg), while working part-time at a jail. 

 

At work, she is given a chance to show off her abilities when she is assigned to accompany an unruly prisoner (Melissa Leo) on an emergency furlough to visit her dying mother, but the duos trip goes haywire.

 

Saturday, March 10 at 8:00 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, The Local Take concludes a special two part re-broadcast with an update about The Weeping Time.  Dr. Kwesi DeGraft-Hanson about his ongoing efforts to commemorate the anniversary of the largest recorded single day sale of enslaved humans in the history of the United States.  It happened in Savannah on March 2 - 3, 1859.

Support for Jazz 91.9 WCLK programming comes from Arts At Tech presenting Guitarist Kaki King on Saturday, March 10, 8:00 p.m. at the Ferst Center for The Arts.   King's Jazz-infused show features a guitar that transforms into a storytelling screen.
