"Lee has a personable style that exudes the warmth of Wes Montgomery. He skillfully creates melodic statements that dart in and out of a variety of rhythmic contexts. His obvious affinity for Afro-Cuban and Brazilian rhythms brings a refreshing point of view to his Jazz-based music" JESSE CHUY VARELA Music Director - KCSM JAZZ 91
