While retaining his exciting and original compositional voice, Gordon Lee moves from the big band of "Flying Dream" (OA2 22016) to the piano trio for his second OA2 release. Along with his band of Northwest all-stars, Lee explores a diverse set of 7 originals and 5 compelling arrangements of compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Lee Morgan, and a Native American chant by his former boss and mentor, the late saxophonist Jim Pepper. Based in Portland, Oregon, the pianist, composer, and educator has been one of the pre-eminent voices in NW jazz for decades performing with top names, touring the world and recording his own music with groups led by Jim Pepper, Leroy Vinnegar and Mel Brown, among many others. "Pianist Gordon Lee's solos are often vast feats of architecture, their immense proportions looming up with great suddeness... symphonic precision as well as spontaneous improvisation." -Oregon Jazz Scene
