Jennifer Lee CD Release
Rooted in the straight-ahead jazz tradition, Jennifer has developed a style all her own. She writes, arranges and interprets across a wide range of genres including folk, funk, jazz, bossa nova and blues. With her warm, lovely voice, extraordinary musicality and hip sense of time, Jennifer brings each song uniquely to life.
Whether on guitar or piano, Jennifer accompanies herself with simple elegance and sweetness, while maintaining a deep and thrilling in-the-pocket groove. Lee knows how to drop a jaw with her rhythm ease on guitar, says Jean Bartlett of the Pacifica Tribune. Solo and with her band, Jennifer has been featured in numerous Northern California festivals and concert series, and has played to sold out venues throughout the state and up and down the West Coast.
Her upcoming release, Jennifer Lee and the Ever-Expanding Universe, is a showcase of her talents as a songwriter. Joining Jennifer at this performance will be:
Adam Shulman - piano
John Wiitala - bass
Lorca Hart - drums
and special guest vocalist Carey Williams
Nine years is a long time between albums, but Jennifer Lee has been busy taking her music into rarely explored emotional terrain. My Shining Hour, the third album by the esteemed Bay Area jazz vocalist, guitarist, and pianist, reintroduces an artist long known as a gifted interpreter of the American and Brazilian Songbooks. But with her ensemble the Ever-Expanding Universe and a stellar cast of special guests, Lee has emerged as a songwriter with an unusual gift for evoking uncanny experiences, hard-won wisdom, unbridled joy, and liminal states of consciousness.
