We chose 2 tracks from her album Almost Blue.
Fantastic debut album for Betty Delight. We're delighted also!

Third in line pianist Jacky Terrasson(Berlin, 1966)  with his cd Take This.
 Perhaps Jacky has to work on the percussion and drums. A little loud for this sessions.
The month Mai  Lisa Hilton is on tour in Las Vegas.
Great opportunity to hear Lisa with some tracks from her new great cd Horizons.
We give you Moon River and Surfer Blues!
