Maybe music is that fragile moment when the brain is singing. - John Cage
"Masterful, inventive, sensitive, daring and breathtakingly beautiful piano and instrumental arrangements seasoned with a dash of whimsy. Lee's music always make audiences smile."
I have played piano and/or accordion with Eddie Harris, Larry Coryell, Benny Golson, Kenny Wheeler, Maria Schneider, Randy Brecker and many others, all over the world.
