Film in Music invites you on a cinematic ride inside the music. This project, led by cellist Peggy Lee, features eight improvisers from Vancouver's rich and diverse creative music community. Each musician becomes a character within the framework of this musical suite, voicing their ideas through unaccompanied solos and in small groupings. While the composed sections of the music imply the arc of a story, they are also intended as launching pads for the musicians to make extended improvised statements, taking the listener on a journey that is never the same twice.  

Since moving to Vancouver from Toronto in 1989, Peggy Lee has become a major voice in the city's creative music community. Film in Music was originally conceived of in 2009. Current projects besides Film in Music include the Peggy Lee Band, Ron Samworth's Talking Pictures, The Tony Wilson Sextet, Wayne Horvitz' Gravitas Quartet, a duo with Robin Holcomb, the string quartet Microcosmos, a new collaboration with Mary Margaret O'Hara called Beautiful Tool, Dave Douglas' Mountain Passages and the new music ensemble Standing Wave.

The Peggy Lee Band, has released five recordings of original music, the most recent being Invitation, released in October 2012 on the Drip Audio label.  This latest recording has garnered rave reviews both internationally and right here at home.

"Imagine a modern-day Duke Ellington combo spiced up with shards of noise, and you'd be on the right track; it's music that combines the timeless and the otherworldly in equal measure." - The Georgia Straight

"...there is an overall sense of completeness that makes this a great album, rather than just an assemblage of good songs." - All About Jazz

"This is beautiful music played by master musicians of a sort that is all too rare." - The Province
