Review: Like whispers of a better place just around the corner if you're prepared to take the ride, the tunes on West Coast mainstay and prolific pianist/composer Lisa Hilton's exciting, well-paced Oasis work their way into your listening space and take up residence. They hop, bop and bounce along her keyboard.
