Hilton Ruiz on Piano Jazz

Hilton Ruiz

  Hilton Ruiz (1952 – 2006) was a jazz pianist in the Afro-Cuban and bebop styles. Born to Puerto Rican parents in New York, he became known as a child prodigy and as a teenager gigged professionally, working primarily with Latin music groups. Ruiz went on to work with major jazz artists like Frank Foster, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, and Joe Newman. On this 1988 Piano Jazz, Ruiz solos on his own composition “Home Coming” and duets with McPartland on “I’ll Remember April.”
