Gordon Lee

Gordon Leeís talents are many and they are considerable. He is a rare gem in the world of jazz with his own authentic voice, his own intent and his own path. “This Path” is a reflection of the

influences and experiences of Gordonís own journey of 30 years of jazz and world music.

Gordonís compositions have been critically and commercially celebrated including winning the International Hennessey Jazz Search as part of the Mel Brown Sextet. He toured the world with Native American saxophonist Jim Pepper and worked with jazz greats Don Cherry, Bill Frisell, Houston Person, Javon Jackson and Leroy Vinnegar. He performed with and arranged music for World Beat pioneer Obo Addy and has been commissioned to compose for jazz groups, orchestras and chamber ensembles.
